 GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" July 21, 1968 - No. 14 

By Swan: Whitton without Bob Little were a rather tame Tiger and although the scores didn't truly indicate the play we won rather easily. Once again "Cuz" Foley dominated the game from the centre.

Frank Conlan turned in his best game of the year and Bob Spears tried to steal some of Peggy O'Neill's thunder with four neat goals.

John Foley increased his lead in the Griffith Co-op-Ernest Hillier suit award with another three points with Frank Conlan collecting two and Sid Robins one.

Our Seconds, despite some atrocious kicking, also won by a century margin, the best in a good team effort being Garry Owen, Ray Smith, John Crump and Stuart Patterson.

Without a game, 26 of our Thirds turned up early for a 13 a side practice trial and showed some lively play.

Griffith mathematicians received a lot of satisfaction when the Aussie Ruler (the league's official programme) confirmed their figures last week that Griffith, not Ganmain, held third place on percentage.

It's Ardlethan today and this game could show if Griffith are good as their last three wins indicate - we think they are but the final siren will tell the tale.
