GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" May 26, 1968 - No. 7
By Swan: It was a black day for Griffith at Ardlethan with defeat in both games.
No excuses, however, as the bright "Stars" were too good in both games.
Once again, in a team that played well in spasms, Sid Robins was our best and most consistent.
Votes in the Griffith Co-op-Ernest Hillier suit award were Sid Robins 3, John Foley 2, Bill Biron 1.
In the Seconds game Ardlethan started off like a cyclone and had 7-4 on the board before our players knew the game had started.
That was too much start for our team for whom in a mediocre effort the best were Barry Noonan, Ray Smith, Mick Newman.
A fortnight ago our under 14 and under 16 schoolboys teams travelled to Queanbeyan for games against that centre winning the under 16 and losing the 14's. Robert Griggs (14's) and Jim Rolfe (16's) won the trophies for the best players in their respective teams.
Geoff Martin retained his unbeaten record in the hempen square when he convincingly beat a highly rated Sydney Middleweight at the Police Boys Club's Tournament on May 11, to make it 5 wins in 5 fights.
Congratulations to our six players who made the SWDFL squad - they all merited their selection also to Ron O'Neill who performed well in his enforced role of official runner.
