GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" July 7, 1968 - No. 12
By Swan: Although still only in fifth place, morale in the Swans' camp is sky high after wins over the top two teams and we expect to make that elusive four soon.
Our thanks to the G.G.-Matong players for their co-operation in the small ceremony to mark Bill Biron's 200th game - hope we can do the same for them one day.
Last Sunday we squared the ledger with the Magpies and our win was just as conclusive as was there's on the inland beach at Grong Grong.
Another splendid team effort in a tough, crowded game, in which our star was Sid Robins, with Darryl Collis a close runner-up. Points in the Griffith Co-op-Ernest Hillier suit award, went to Sid 3, Darryl 2, Bob Spears 1.
Players to show out in the Seconds big win were Les Collis, Ray Smith, John Peters, Mick Newman and John Walsh.
No games for the Thirds last week, but these keen youngsters were out in force for a kick prior to the seconds game.
It was pleasing to see a good roll-up of players and supporters at the after game social last Sunday at which a presentation was made to Bill Biron of his long and worthy service as a player.
