GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" August 13, 1972 - No. 18
By Swan: Three wins gave us another field day at the expense of the Stars last Sunday and lifted all players' confidence another notch for the fast-approaching finals.
The First and Seconds had easy wins, but the Thirds had to come from behind at half time to win a tough low scoring game by seven points, which puts them well in the running for a place in the first semi final.
The Stars were unfortunate that a few of their players were not interested enough to turn up and several had to double up, which must be most disheartening to the coaches, the keener players and the hard-working officials.
Best player awards for our teams were Firsts (Griffith Co-op Society) Garry Owen; Seconds (Bob Carroll's Menswear) Chris Sharpe; Thirds (Socks award) Terry Hughes.
Chris Sharpe incidentally scored his "ton" in the Seconds game by kicking ten to make his total for the season 105 - an outstanding feat seeing he missed a couple of games.
Our Ball on Friday night was a resounding success with plenty of contenders for the "belt" award.
