GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" June 23, 1968 - No. 10
By Swan: The lane eventually had a turning, and we found the bend last Sunday when we hit the "high spots" against Turvey Park. The Bulldogs may have been unlucky, but a few positional changes worked wonders and our best performance of the year was certainly a morale booster.
Continuing his good form of Yerong Creek, John Foley, rated our best but he had many strong supporters in a really good team effort. "Cuz" won himself another three points in the Griffith Co-op-Ernest Hillier suit award for his grand performance and from many good players the award judges sorted out Ron O'Neill for 2 points and John Scott one.
The Second's game was very keenly contested with Turvey gaining the points by a more determined finish. Les Hodson, in his second game of the season, was our best, with others to do well being John Peters, Mick Newman and Warwick Collis.
Turvey Park unfortunately had to forfeit the Thirds game, but the enthusiastic "Secco" was not to be denied - he lent Turvey nine players, and a game of sorts was played, and some pleasing potential revealed.
We have two "easy" games coming up - Ariah Park-Mirrool today and Grong Grong-Matong, but with wins in both (how optimistic can you get) we should become a real threat for the premiership.
