GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" May 21, 1972 - No. 7
By Swan: Another three wins highlighted by a not easy but conclusive win in the main game at Whitton, has everyone eagerly awaiting the big clash with the Bulldogs today.
There is little to enthuse about in the main game as it was a rugged scrambly affair with the Swans improving after half time to win well.
Chris Sharpe gave his goal tally another boost with nine more at Whitton in a Seconds game that also helped our percentage a little.
The Thirds made it two in a row when they were too lively for a bigger but slower Barellan team.
Trophy winners for out three teams were Firsts (Griffith Co-op award) Ian Wade; Seconds (Bob Carroll Trophy) Gary Gardner; Thirds (Socks award) Glen Luhrs.
Congratulations to Phil Smith on his engagement. Ron Russell raised quite a cheer when he made the announcement prior to the game at Whitton. Everyone wishes "Shirley" well, but the occasion must have been a little too much as he had a quite game, but he will soon settle down we hope.
Congratulations also to David Simmons and Greg Thompson for gaining selection in the N.S.W. carnival.
