SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" August 7, 1966 - No. 15
Narrandera were too good on the day last Sunday, but our machine had some vital cogs missing in Bob Little, Bob Spears and Angie Maloni.
Bill Biron turned in a brilliant exhibition to be best afield, and had he received expected support, the result may have been different.
Young brothers, John and Reg Higgins, gave promising displays - John in the ruck; Reg at centre wing - and also more will be heard of these two bright young prospects.
Our seconds also found Narrandera too solid. They played well, however, with Mick Newman, Denny Dreyer and Ray Smith prominent.
The bright spot on our visit to Narrandera was the win by the 3rd XVIII. Jim Portolesi, the star with 5 goals, was well supported by Les Hodson and Rocco Robinson.
Our three schoolboy teams were defeated in their semi-finals, with only the under 12's going on into the prelim final. We are proud to record, however, that two of our players, Les Hodson (under 16's) and Peter Greedy (under 12's) won the best and fairest awards in their respective age group competitions.
