SWANS CLUB NOTES: The Aussie Ruler June 25, 1961 - No 11.
It's nice to get back to the winning list again, with both teams giving good displays for their victory.
Without Biron, Rowston, Bob Tyndall and Fielder, it was no mean feat to defeat Ganmain, especially with the game played at Ganmain, were we have not won since 1952.
It was pleasing to see Mick Newman with the guernsey on again. He had his first game for several weeks with the Seconds and went well enough to indicate that he will soon be back in his old position.
Malcolm Brauman and Don Pannan, two of the youngest Second XVIII players, were amongst the best Griffith players at Ganmain and are probably our most promising recruits.
Frank Conlan wins the award as best player at Ganmain, At fullback, he was never defeated and his virile clearance had the young Ganmain forwards unsettled.
Noticed three SWDFL selectors at Ganmain and, as Gerald Carroll "burned" all day, chances are the SWDFL team for the Farrer game will have a new rover.
Our annual Ball will be in Woodside Hall this year, on July 14.
Only the Farrer game that weekend, so there will be no curfew on that Friday night.
After missing two games through injury, Don Best played a grand game in defence last Sunday. In the second term, he seemed to have the ball on a string, and it certainly was a bright return to the game for him.
