GRIFFITH NOTES: The Aussie Ruler June 28, 1964 - No. 10
By Neil Griggs: Although we defeated Whitton by 50, the lack of match-play and the slight easing up at training had some effect, and the team did not play as well as they can.
Peter Morris promised the players two tough training runs this week.
Star of the game was Len Sexton, who played one of his best games ever for Griffith.
Local fans were pleased to see Ian Crewes back in the team after injury, "Pal" turned in a brilliant first half, but faded a little towards the end. He will be fitter next week.
Mal Brauman maintained his place amongst the goal-kickers with five, but his kicking still needs a little tidying up.
The 2nd XVIII game was a thriller and the draw was a fair result. Bad kicking (19 shots to 14) proved costly for us. Our best were John Kirkwood, Bob Smyth and Col Geddes.
The lucky SWDFL delegates made everyone happy when they drew the "big plum" in Melbourne. Let us hope, with maximum support, it is the success it should be.
