GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" April 23, 1972 - No. 3
By Swan: Another game, another win and we are still at the top of the ladder but from the results today could be the big test. A close and hard game for three quarters then we did the opposite to the previous week - came home like a train to win by 39 points, which should have been doubled with some straight kicking.
Our Seconds and Thirds were given a football lesson in their respective games although Leeton strained the friendship with some of the "boys" in the thirds team.
Once again our generous donors the Griffith Co-op Society and Bob Carroll are giving best player trophies each game.
The winners against G.G.-Matong (which missed out last week) were Co-op award (Firsts) John Candusso and Bob Carroll award (Seconds) Trevor Reed while against Leeton the Co-op award went to Sid Robins and Bob Carroll's to Errol Hill.
It was rather disappointing to find a blank space instead of the Leeton team list in the Aussie Ruler, especially as they have many newcomers this year. I understood non arrival of guernseys was the reason.
