SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" May 8, 1966 - No. 4
It was sackcloth and ashes for the Griffith team last week after their debuckle against Turvey Park and unless goalkicking improves it will just be ashes (of our hopes).
A score of 3-20 won't win many games, and it seems we will have to equip our forwards with some radar-like device if we hope to play at Narrandera on September 25th.
Turvey Park dished out a lesson in team play in the first half, and it wasn't until the benefit of those juicy steaks wore off that we got into the game.
We had our chance to win (with good kicking, of course) in the third quarter, but 2-9 was neither good kicking nor good football. Vic Hathaway was our best, with Bill Tyndall hitting top form again, also doing well.
Our seconds also suffered their first loss, but went down only after a determined fight. Best were John Kirkwood (making a strong bid for the firsts), Allan Norton-Baker and Max Eldridge.
The thirds, despite being a little awed by the size of their opponents, brought the only ray of sunshine with a good win, 48 to 6.
