SWANS CLUB NOTES: 'The Aussie Ruler' April 16, 1961 - No 2.
Two wins first-up is a great morale booster.
Sore feet and blisters were "trumps" amongst Griffith players after the hard going at Grong Grong, with coach Len Sexton winning the award for the most blisters.
The Club is very happy to get over the "Magpies" hurdle - it is the first time we have won at Grong Grong for years.
Bob Spears had the unenviable task of marking Peter Box, and in sharing the honours with Peter, gave notice that he will cause opposing centres lots of worry before the season ends.
Second XVIII rover, Alby Sutton, revealed such promising form last Sunday that he must come in for serious consideration for promotion.
Vic Hathaway had a "ripping" time at Grong Grong - a new pair of shorts and a new guernsey having to be obtained, but this didn't stop Vic from playing his usual 100-minute game.
Bill Tyndall, just back from his honeymoon, claims the last quarter was the longest he has experienced. However, he wasn't the only one from Griffith pleased to hear the final siren.
Junior, Malcolm Brauman was constantly under notice for good play in the seconds game, and this lad has the potential to really go places in the game.
