GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" August 25, 1963 - No. 18

By Neil Griggs: The sympathy of the Griffith Club was conveyed to the bereaved Carroll and Rutland families on Saturday, but again to them goes the sincere condolence of this club.

With no games for us this weekend, there is little to write about.

Congratulations to our schoolboy teams on their good performances during the season.

The under 14's deserve special mention for their sterling effort in last Saturday's grand final, when they were narrowly defeated 49-43 by Narrandera.

A contingent of 29 from the 14's and 16's teams travelled to Sydney on Friday for a visit as guests of the Peakhurst Schoolboys' Association. Apart from other activities they will play a game against a Peakhurst team.

Unfortunately (our second 18), forfeits, although points on the board are no help with percentage and the loss of confidently anticipated percentage from last Sunday cause just about ruin to their chances of qualifying for the finals.

It all depends, however, on our next game and, with Grong Grong-Matong still with a chance of qualifying, the seconds game could be the main attraction next Sunday.
