GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" July 14, 1968 - No. 13

By Swan: The opposition from Leeton last Sunday was not quite as tough as expected and we were able to advance our percentage about 10% with a 85-point win.

The key to a mighty team effort was the complete control of the centre by John Foley and he was very well supported by Phil Smith, Darryl Collis, Ron O'Neill, Kevin Kirkpatrick and John Candusso.

Naturally enough for his grand performance, John Foley added another three points to his tally in the Griffith Co-op-Ernest Hillier suit award, with Phillip Smith getting 2 and Ron O'Neill 1.

The seconds also won their game well after a ragged start but although they boosted their percentage a little they still remain a game out of the four. In a tough game our best were Garry Owen, John Langlands, Les Hodson, John Peters.

Leeton, unfortunately, have withdrawn from the third 18 competition.

The new clubrooms are a credit to the Leeton Club and most of our players and officials accepted the invitation to inspect them after the game.

Our new amenities block is away to a good start and works boss Jim Eley hopes the big roll-up at working bees continues so that the building can be finished this year.

We welcome Whitton today and hope for a game free of any unhappy incidents.    Notes No. 14 >>>
