GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" August 9, 1964 - No. 15
By Neil Griggs: Gissing Oval again proved our hoodoo ground. With one win in eight visits, we should perhaps ask Turvey Park to play us on another ground on our next visit to Wagga.
After our good effort to defeat Ganmain we were pretty confident (take 2/1 was the quote), but the jinx prevailed.
Of course, 18 Turvey Park players also had something to do with our loss. They played really well and on the day deserved to win. They have only to maintain this form to finish the season in a blaze of glory.
Don Best was our only clear winner of the game, and the shirt judges had an easy task.
Don also secured the maximum points in the Ron Dalla-Daroff suit score award. Other points went to Vic Hathaway 3, John Walsh, Bill Biron 2 each, and Ray Davies and Bob Tyndall one each.
Without several more experienced players, our seconds were no match for the team Turvey fielded to ensure they stayed in the four.
It is Grong Grong-Matong at home today and, with the help of the cheer squad, banners, etc.,, we hope to gain another four points.
