SWANS CLUB NOTES: The Aussie Ruler August 20, 1961 - No 18.
Leeton were too good last Sunday. We had our chances but failed to hold their high flyers by five minutes. Some consolation was a good effort by the second XV111, who took the honours of a great win.
Other "sweeteners" were the record gate (£201) and an £80 competition.
Len Sexton was the target all day for much illegal attention, and such tactics, if not checked, will have our game down to the level "of the greatest game of all" (Rugby League).
After a lapse in recent games, Gordon Browne returned to top form and was one of our best players against Leeton.
Mick Newman and Jim Fielder are available again this week, and their return leaves Bill Tyndall the only absentee.
Fred Lodding came from Beelbangera this season and has shown such good form with the Seconds that promotion should come early next year.
Jack Kloot playing his 20th year of first grade football, intends o retire at the end of the season. Although he has been in and out of the First XVIII this year, Jack has played more than 100 games in his career with the Griffith Club.
At this stage of the "Aussie Ruler's" first season, this Club would like to congratulate the publishers on a job well done, and we extend best wishes for the future.
