GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" July 8, 1962 - No. 12
By Neil Griggs: For a change, there was no exciting finish to our game against Ganmain. It was an exciting game, however, and our thanks to the Maroons for a good solid work-out.
Doug Koehler, on the wing, was our best player with a neat and constructive exhibition that won him his first shirt.
Bill Biron was again tops as ruckman, and forward with four goals sending him further up the goal-kicking ladder.
Don Best seemed to have the ball on a string in the first half, and the way he anticipated and turned their attack must have had Ganmain thinking he was twins.
A very heavy knock just prior to half time had Don a little shaky for the rest of the game, but he still battled on to be amongst our best.
With an indifferent display, our seconds, with a two points loss to Ganmain, now have a hard job ahead to qualify for the finals.
Those who did best of a disappointing team were "Mumbles" Young, Bob Ramsay, Jack Kloot and Denny Dreyer.
We have our long trip to Wagga this Sunday and, although the "cockies" need rain, we would like, just for once, to see a nice, dry Gissing Oval.
