GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" July 23, 1972 - No. 15
By Swan: A 75-point win over a team such as Whitton keeps morale high and the players keen and enthusiastic.
Although well and truly beaten the Tigers put up a great battle until half time and even when the Swans got on top in the second half, played on well and strongly enough to make one wonder why they are so low on the competition ladder. Highlight of the game was the performance of full forward Martin Jackson, who in his best effort of the season, led and marked brilliantly to kick ten goals from all angles including three real beauties.
The Seconds had another big win and again Chris Sharpe was amongst the goals with 12 to bring his total for the season to 91, so with four games to go he should reach the prizes "ton".
The Thirds found Barellan United a fitter and better team than at their last meeting and lost by 22 points.
Trophy winners for our teams were Firsts (Griffith Co-op Society award) Martin Jackson; Seconds (Bob Carroll's Menswear) Phil Botten; Thirds (Sid Sellar's Socks) Glen Luhrs.
Supporters and players don't forget our Ball on Friday, August 4.
