GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" April 28, 1963 - No. 3
By Neil Griggs: Two wins over our old rivals, Leeton, sent our big crowd of supporters home last Sunday well pleased with the players' performance.
Len Sexton turned in a beauty, to rate as best player afield. Although he got caught a couple of times playing the field he was a real will-o'-the-wisp all day.
Shirt winners for the day were (coaches excluded) Bill Biron) first 18) and Ernie "Pouncer" Wade (2nd 18). Both are ruckman and each contributed a lot to their teams' win.
Bob Tyndall and Bob Spears also did their share towards the win as they respectively opposed Des Lyons and John Foley, and kept these two Leeton stars rather quite and out of the game.
It was a big loss to the first 18 when rover Bill Tyndall had to go off with a twisted knee early in the second quarter. Bill had been playing well and everyone is hoping the injury is not a serious one.
The barracking was like a grand final when our second 18 staged a "Bernborough" finish to win their game. This team certainly worrying their coach, Len Sexton, for they have won both games with a last quarter rally.
Leeton won the third 18 game very easily, as did Narrandera the previous week, but our boys are very keen and eagerly awaiting another game.
