GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" August 20, 1972 - No. 19
By Swan: Two wins from three games was not a bad return for the trip to Ganmain but, unfortunately, victory in the main game went to the home team.
It must be admitted, however, that we did not deserve to win this match as we showed little enterprise or purpose and will need to do a lot better from here on.
Winners of the weekly awards were: Firsts (Griffith Co-op Society) Ian Wade, Seconds (Bob Carroll's Menswear) Colin Wood, Thirds (Socks award) Terry Hughes.
Our grateful thanks to the Co-op Society and Bob Carroll, plus the many donors of socks for their generosity in providing these weekly trophies - their gesture was much appreciated by the club and players.
The great success of the Swans in the League best and fairest awards - congratulations to Mr. Reliable, Sid Robins, on his well merited Gammage Medal win, to Glen Luhrs for winning the Third XV111 Petts Trophy and also to Chris Sharpe, who was equal second in the Second XV111 Lanham Medal and also kicked 112 goals for the season.
Sid Robins capped a real good season by also winning a local Band F award for a portable TV set.
We have two teams - Thirds and Seconds - in today's semi final and we wish them and all the other teams playing today the best of luck.
