SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" April 24, 1966 - No. 2
It was a bright and happy start to the season to register a hat trick of wins against Ariah Park-Mirrool last Sunday.
The senior game was a good, hard exhibition which, however, got a little too hard in the third quarter, when activity resembled half a dozen tag wrestling teams in action at one time, rather than a game of football.
Our best in the game were Vic Hathaway, Robert Munnerley, Bob Little and Kevin Kirkpatrick.
The 2nd XV111 game also saw some good football, with Griffith holding an early lead to the end. Coach Rod Burgoyne set a splendid example to his team and was well supported by John Mitchell.
The third 18 game was a runaway affair, Griffith winning 132 to 12, with Max Eldridge, Gary Owen and Trevor Phillis prominent. It was, however, the Bombers first game in this competition and they have our best wishes for a steady improvement.
To make it a really good week, our three schoolboy teams won their games on Saturday, making it six out of six for the Red and White.
Griffith schoolboy's officials for this year are President: Mr. E. Chinn and Hon. Secretary-Treasurer: Mr. W. R. Heffernan.
Our shortest trip - to Whitton today, and our sights are set on another two wins.
