GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" May 14, 1972 - No. 6
By Swan: Three wins made it a big day for the Swans against Coolamon last Sunday and although we had hopes of getting a hat-trick the winning margins were a little beyond our expectations.
Despite the difference in the scores the First 18 game was a real crowd "pleaser" with both teams appreciating and taking advantage of intelligent umpiring that allowed the game to flow.
Bruce Forbes failed to satisfy the selectors, he was fully fit so spent the day doing odd jobs in his capacity of committeeman and then kept details and interesting statistics of our team in the main game.
Bruce says he will be back on deck again today in the No. 16 guernsey.
Game awards for last Sunday were: Firsts (Griffith Co-op Trophy) Vic Wilson; Seconds (Bob Carroll Trophy) Chris Sharpe; Thirds (socks award) Fred Schmetzer.
Chris Sharpe followed his 10 goals at Ariah Park with 12 against Coolamon but he is happy to remain in the Seconds as he feels it is not so hectic as Senior football where he has had an unlucky trot with injuries.
Congratulations and best wishes to our players David Simmons, Greg Thompson, Bob Hogan, Garry Diggelmann who gained selection in the Riverina Schoolboys team which is playing in Sydney during the school holidays.
