GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" August 9, 1970 - No. 17
By Swan: Turvey Park is not the only team which is in a slump as we have really gone badly in the last three games.
Somehow, we managed to get away with Ganmain and Ardlethan, but the Tigers really burst the bubble last Sunday.
They seemed much keener and played well enough to indicate they can go on and develop into worthy contenders in the finals. Apart from Sid and Wayne Robins, Darryl Collis and Bob Prenzel, it was difficult to find good consistent players in the Swans' ranks, although junior Denis Tyndall, in his first senior game, set a splendid example in determination and courage.
The Seconds remained at the top of their competition ladder with an easy 58-point win and seem sure to be contesting the second semi final which, on current form, will be on a different day to the Firsts.
Without a great deal of opposition, we had many good players in this game but one who took the eye was "Chatter" Greedy.
Our Thirds didn't have a game, but they continued to turn up well for training and should be fit for today.
