GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" April 26, 1970 - No. 3
By Swan: Two out of three was not a bad effort last Sunday even though we lost the main game.
We did, however, give the Bulldogs a bit of a scare but they were too big and strong and wore us down in the last 15 minutes or so.
Despite the 31-point loss our confidence remains high as with Bill Biron, Bob Little and Mal Brauman plus an assistant coach if we can locate one, to come into the team we should have the manpower to match all teams.
Bruce Forbes and Sid Robins turned in their usual top efforts and it was pleasing to see John "Candoos" Candusso back to form and rating amongst our best.
Our young Seconds turned on some brilliant football in their win and this game rated best of the day. Vic Wilson, David Simmons, George Duncan, Glen Harrison and Trevor "Sep" Reed were well in the fore in a grand team effort.
From the training sessions there was some doubt about having a Thirds team but enough were there and this team too had an encouraging win.
Here's hoping everyone turns up for training and keeps the various coaches busy.
