SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" August 29, 1965 - No. 18
There were a few hectic incidents, but generally the game last Sunday lacked the fire of our usual tussle with Narrandera.
Our win and Ganmain's loss have lifted us to top place, with bright prospects of retaining the Dal Williams Trophy.
With some early strong and lively play by Narrandera and an injury to the umpire it took our team two quarters to get really going, but they produced some dazzling football in the second half.
When umpire McGough broke down, pulling a leg muscle, it was fortunate that umpire Pigram, who did the Barellan semi last Saturday, was available.
Vic Hathaway, "Mr. Dependable", won the "spin" donated by the manager of Geelong 3rd XV111, who was an interested spectator, and Mal Brauman won Ron Dalla's Whitmont shirt.
Narrandera were too good in the seconds, but our team tried hard and best were served by Fred Gambell (trophy), Ray Smith, John Higgins and Brian Hawkins.
The thirds defeated Narrandera 62-19, and another good effort has them talking premiership. Best were Ross Ward, James Browne, John Crump, Russ Tyndall.
