GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" May 27, 1962 - No. 6
By Neil Griggs: Our win at Narrandera took us again to top place, but the victory was dearly achieved - the loss of John Anderson (dislocated shoulder) and John Snaidero (broken arm) being big blows to our future hopes.
Best players for our teams on the day were Gordon Browne (1st 18) and Reggie McCudden (2nd 18). It was Reggie's first football trophy, but his enthusiasm is such that it shouldn't be his last.
We feel all our players did well in the Farrer games last Sunday, with Len Sexton attracting most notice. Len, Allan Hudson and Bill Biron gives us three reps. in the team to go to Sydney, and they will be sorely missed in our vital game with Ardlethan. They have our best wishes, however, and we know they will do their share towards a S.W.D.F.L. win.
It was pleasing to see Jim Fielder, Doug Koehler and Jack Kloot back in training again, giving the club a helping hand to cover our crop of injuries.
Someone along the line slipped up with the schoolboy's knockout last Saturday. It was switched from Leeton to Narrandera, but the only teams that turned up were three from Griffith. The carnival was abandoned, but the promoters forgot to notify Griffith, so it's hoped they won't quibble about settling the £28 for the bus.
