GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" June 25, 1972 - No. 11
By Swan: How can you put the two games together - one-week no-hopers almost from the start against Ganmain then the next playing like champions against Leeton.
Our big win gave our percentage a boost, but it wasn't needed to get us back into second place, thanks to Whitton upsetting Turvey Park. Let us hope we can hold on to that place till the finals come along.
Although he was getting short on petrol and was glad to come off early in the last quarter to give John Higgins a run, Bob "Tank" Spears showed he is still a strong and rugged footballer, and probably earned himself another game or two with the Firsts. Leeton had little trouble in defeating our disappointing Seconds and also the Thirds.
There were a few sparks of interest provided in the game when two of the smaller players who clashed in last year's final and received a week's holiday each decided to carry on their feud, but it was rather tame action and did not give umpire Henderson much worry.
Awards for the three teams went to Firsts (Griffith Co-op Society) Greg Thompson; Seconds (Bob Carroll's Menswear) Jeff Evans; Thirds (Socks Award) Nigel Cafe.
