SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" July 9, 1967 - No. 12

Coolamon proved to be an easier hurdle than expected last Sunday, although the scores 133-53 were not a true indication of the game.

It was not a good exhibition, far too much mishandling and poor kicking but the 80-point margin helps our percentage.

Coach Kevin Kirkpatrick, once again set the tempo and rated as our best afield thus collecting another 3 points in the Griffith Co-op-Ernest Hillier suit wear.

For his brightest performance to date John Scott received two points in the award with Wayne Bromley's solid effort earning him the one point. Others to do well included Geoff Martin, Sid Robins, Roger Thom and Bob Spears.

To make a big aggregate for the day of 310 to 66 our seconds won 177-13.

Coach Don Best, however wasn't really satisfied and reckons a big improvement in teamwork is still needed.

Prominent second 18 players were Darryl Collis, John Foley (first game for season), Les Collis and Ralph Savage.

In this game Wally Clark was unlucky enough to suffer, purely accidentally, a fractured jaw and everyone hopes his recovery will be complete and speedy.

Our thirds have not had a game recently but are still well represented each training night although the recent steak night brought out more than the average. It was opportune however, as they were able to congratulate their coach Bob Spears on the birth of his second footballer.    Notes No. 13 >>>
