GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" April 14, 1968 - No. 1
By Swan: Greetings to all clubs and players in what could be a hard, tough season in more ways than one if the drought doesn't break soon.
Our high hopes for 1968 were dimmed recently with the loss of Bob Prenzel (Wagga Teachers College) to Wagga and some white anting by Whitton that lost us Brian and John Fitzpatrick and we are now minus three of our good defenders.
The old adage about "people who live in glass houses, etc." should be borne in mind by clubs such as Whitton, who, when Leeton's rather vitriolic letter about Griffith trying to sign up Ross Elwin (which club wouldn't if they had the chance) was read at the League meeting, joined with other clubs in castigating Griffith's action ... at least we extended Leeton the courtesy of notice of intention to interview.
However, let us get back to the "game of the people".
We have had some very good games (3) against Finley last Sunday and all players should be fit for the first comp. game against Coolamon today.
We hope soon to commence building an amenities block (club rooms) at the Ex-Servicemen's Oval to join Leeton in really first class facilities.
