GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" September 19, 1971 - No. 23
By Swan: The Swans came through last Sunday's tough game free of serious injury and three training sessions during the week should have them at their top today.
Our players, set a brilliant example by Sid Robins, really hit their straps against Grong Grong-Matong and if we can find the same form, we will really challenge the Redlegs for the major portion of Amoco's generous prize money.
Congratulations to the Magpies on making the finals for the first time and on the crowd-pleasing football they turned on in their two games. Better luck to them next year.
There is no doubt our lady supporters are providing plenty of colour to the final's scene with their bright red and white outfits - those flaming hot pants should bring a twinkle to even the most tired old eyes.
As this is the last issue of the season, may the Swans congratulate the editor of the Aussie Ruler on his interesting booklet and also extend to all clubs the best wishes for a trouble free and successful season in 1972.
