GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" July 16, 1972 - No. 14
By Swan: The spectators who braved the bleak conditions at the Ex-Servicemen's Oval last Sunday had little to enthuse about as right from the start it was apparent Griffith had the game "in the bag".
The Bombers, however, offered enough solid opposition to give the Swans some good solid match practice to prepare them for some tough games which are coming up.
Our Seconds as expected were far too strong for the Bombers and with the aid of another 12 goals from Chris Sharpe, won 205 to 27 to keep up their percentage.
Trophy winners against Ariah Park were Firsts (Griffith Co-op Society award) Bruce Forbes; Seconds (Bob Carroll's Menswear) Jeff Evans.
Ron Russell, with the plaster off his leg, was pretty active and lively last Sunday so may be back "on deck" again today. Players and supporters are reminded that the popular Club Ball is on Friday, August 4th and that tickets and table bookings are available at Bob Carroll's.
The social committee also is arranging another of the popular games nights in the club rooms next Friday.
