GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" July 12, 1970 - No. 13
By Swan: Sunday June 28, will go down as the Swans best ever day at Gissing Oval with wins in all three games.
Only the diehards thought we had a chance in the main game and even the optimism didn't extend to such a big win.
The inspiration provided by the big three, Doug Prior, Bruce Forbes and Sid Robins, however, saw us break the Bulldogs' winning sequence in no uncertain manner.
Our players' committee staged a most entertaining and successful promotion last Saturday with a ladies' game, past and present game and a game against Binya-Barellan.
A good crowd turned up and everyone enjoyed the afternoon and the trip away funds received a nice boost.
The circle swing and here we are congratulating the SWDFL selectors and players on a job well done and a grand performance against Canberra.
The result was achieved only by 100 per cent will-to-win effort in which the schoolboy's team in its early game set a splendid example.
This morale boosting win and the wealth of talent on show in the two early games portends a bright future for the South West.
