GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" August 18, 1968 - No. 18
By Swan: The experience gained and the manner in which our players handled the worst wet weather ground in the comp. will stand our players in good stead if we have to play our semi on the bog called Gissing Oval.
It didn't take Ron O'Neill long to get the six goals needed for his 100, midway through the second quarter in fact and his achievement was well applauded.
As usual recently we had many good players from whom the Griffith Co-op-Ernest Hillier suit award points went to Frank Conlan 3, Ron O'Neill 2, Reg Higgins 1.
The Second 18 played well to defeat Turvey Park by 51 points with perhaps most noticeable Ray Smith, Wal Clark, John Higgins, Max Eldridge.
Our Thirds gave us the hat-trick with their 47 to 7 win. Good players in a team effort were Bob Wilson, Val Suine, George Duncan, Terry Higgins and Denis "The Menace" Tyndall.
Our 14- and 16-years schoolboys' teams each won their preliminary finals last Saturday and were confident they could do well in the finals against Narrandera yesterday.
With no Rugby opposition for the first time this year we expect a record crowd to see the big game today and we anticipate sending them home happy with our second win of the season over Ariah Park-Mirrool.
