GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" April 12, 1970 - No. 1
By Swan: Although we have lost a few players and to date attendance at training have not been really good there is no panic in the Swans camp.
The form of the players in our knockout and against North Wagga last Sunday has indicated that we still have plenty of potential and by the time the finalists are sorted out we expect to be in the final four.
New coach, Doug Prior, although a hard taskmaster is proving popular with the players.
From their tough training sessions to date our players should soon be in solid condition and, if all the growing reports circulating around are half correct, they will need to be really fit if we are to get anywhere.
Our knockout Carnival on Easter Saturday was quite a successful promotion even if we didn't make a big profit.
All being well we hope to organise another one prior to the competition start next year.
Today we start off a new competition season. Let's hope it is better and brighter than last year with all teams rewarded for their recruiting, organising, etc by a bigger measure of success.
