SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" August 14, 1966 - No. 16
A somewhat lucky hat-trick on Sunday. The wins in the thirds and seconds were decisive enough, but we only just staggered home in the main game, which was poor, unenterprising spectacle.
Bill Biron, Bob Spears, Sid Robins and Len Sexton were our best. Three VFL umpires were in attendance - the appointee for the game, the umpire listed for the Whitton game and the one that did the Barellan League grand final, and guess who drew the "crow"? Ask the players and supporters at the Griffith-Leeton game.
We welcome a new player, Jim Wharton, in the second 18 game. From Deniliquin, Jim was impressive in his first SWDFL game. Apart from Jim, other seconds to play well were Ray Smith, Mick Newman and Denny Dreyer.
Our thirds had revenge for an earlier defeat when they scored an easy 61-13 victory.
Returning after a few weeks absence, when he was a member of the Griffith High School's victorious University Shield team, Bob Prenzel was our best, and he was well supported by Les Hodson and Phillip Smith.
