GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" July 19, 1970 - No. 14
By Swan: Although many remained in their cars a good crowd turned up last Sunday anticipating a fast and spectacular game.
Griffith had shown dazzling form against Turvey Park and Narrandera's young and improving team, after several promising efforts, was gaining a high rating but, unfortunately, the elements were against good football and all players had a lot of trouble in the bleak, windy conditions.
Greater experience enabled the Swans to win by 65 points but, despite this loss, other teams will not want to take the Imps cheaply as the team has a lot of potential.
It was a three-way photo finish for our best between Bruce Forbes, Sid and Wayne Robins and it was pleasing to see "Chummy" (Wayne) continuing the good form he showed in the Colts team at Narrandera.
Our Seconds retained top place with a good win in a crowded, rugged game in which the inimitable "Lager" (Lipscombe) provided the fans with something to scream about in several incidents.
The Thirds just failed to make it a clean sweep when their last kick was a point when a goal would have given them a one point win.
