SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" July 15, 1962 - No. 13
Of last Sunday, can we say, like Turvey Park at Griffith. "Too many players below form", or, without an alibi, "They were just too good". Whatever the comment, we missed out on four valuable points.
No rain for a fortnight, and Gissing Oval, soft and slippery - the "mud heap" must surely be worth four goals to Turvey Park.
Our best players came from the defenders, with Gordon Browne (back pocket) getting the pat as best player.
John Cramp, returning after three weeks absence though injury, starred at full back, while Jim Fielder again revealed what a capable substitute for John Anderson he is.
Accurate kicking kept the seconds in their game, but Turvey were too strong at the finish.
Our team missed Jack Kloot's strong play in the second half, he having been taken off at half time to replace the unavailable Don Best in the first 18.
"Lachie" O'Dwyer won the shirt for the best seconds player, with a good effort at full back, while others to do well were Denny Dreyer, Don Pannan and Rod Potter.
Young Ron Dreyer, having only his third game, distinguished himself with four goals, and could develop into a very good player with experience.
