SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" July 17, 1966 - No. 12
Good sensible control by umpire Agar kept both teams playing the ball, and despite our 72-point win over Ardlethan it was quit an interesting game.
Malcolm Russell was a dynamo who supplied a lot of drive, and his fast, lively play gained him our best player award, as well as eight goals.
Closely challenging for the top award were Angie Maloni and Bill Tyndall - good effort, chaps .... a repeat today, please.
Our rucks certainly missed Mal Brauman, but his replacement, John Mitchell, showed a great deal of potential and will improve with experience.
Our seconds turned in their best effort of the year to beat Ardlethan 123-32. From a lot of good players Ray Smith, Don Best, Mick Newman and Rod Burgoyne were the most prominent.
Our thirds were disappointed at missing a game, but they are fit and keen and hope to score another win today.
The "wog" did what a lot of tough footballers couldn't - caused to miss his first game ever with Griffith last Sunday.
