GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" September 3, 1972 - No. 22
By Swan: Without any serious injuries from last Sunday's tough and rugged preliminary final, the Swans sharpened up with some impressive training during the week, and will be at their top for today's big game against Narrandera.
The Imperials lead us two to one to date this season, but with a little luck, I feel we can even the scores and return home with the club's third (SWDFL) premiership.
The Swans have had a successful season and all members are happy to see the Firsts at least in the finals and everyone in the town is pleased and proud that two of the Leagues three Best and Fairest winners, who will receive their trophies and do their lap of honour today, come from this club.
At a social function in our club rooms last Sunday night, a big crowd of players and supporters attended to see the Best and Fairest votes for our three teams counted. The winners, who were strongly fancied contenders, were First XVIII, Sid Robins; Second XVIII, Ian Hamilton; Third XVIII, Glen Luhrs.
This being the last issue of the "Aussie Ruler" this year, this club congratulates the editor on keeping us up with news and happenings within the League and extend best wishes to all clubs for another good season in 1973.
