GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" June 29, 1969 - No. 11
By Swan: Three wins, three century scores and 392 points to 101 gave us a good percentage boosting day against A.P.-Mirrool last Sunday.
Although A.P.M. were without Ricky Quade we were not over confident as we were without two ruckman John Higgins and Wayne Robins and also John Scott but after a hard battling first half we proved too fit and strong for the Bombers.
We had many good players but features of the win were Ron O'Neill's 13 goals, the return of John Foley for a good first-up game and the grand rucking of Bill Biron and Mal Brauman.
Highlighting our Seconds big win(144-4) was the goalkicking of Grant Luhrs (9) and David Hall (8).
This team is keeping the Firsts on their mettle with their team spirit and fast play-on football.
Our Thirds also played well with Garry "Horse" Gardner starring with 7 goals.
Ruckman John Higgins was married last Saturday and all players and members extend congratulations to John and bride.
On a sadder note sympathy goes out to John Scott whose mother passed away last Saturday in Melbourne. John naturally was in Melbourne and missed the game against A.P.M.
During our after game social on Sunday we said farewell to Jim Eley who after being a player, selector and good clubman is now in Melbourne.
Last week's star player was Bill Biron. Dominated rucks, marked brilliantly all day.
