GRIFFITH CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" June 30, 1963 - No. 12
By Neil Griggs: Leeton gave us a lesson in fast, play on football and non-stop backing up in three games last Sunday and their two competition teams impressed as likely premiers.
Let us hope our players benefitted by the experience.
With Bill Biron absent, Fred Mundy did a grand job in the rucks. He shaded all Leeton opposition including Des Lyons and must now come into reckoning for the game against Carlton.
John Walsh played a grand game against his former team whilst others who were prominent all day were Len Sexton, John Bortolazzo, Allan Smith and John Lane.
Young Fred Stevenson, after playing in the seconds, gained his first senior game when Don Best arrived late. He struck a tough opponent in the brilliant Ron Vivian, but was far from disgraced in a game display.
Slow to get going, the seconds lost their game in the first quarter whilst the third 18 should have learnt quite a lot in their big loss to a good Leeton team.
Shirt winners on the day were John Walsh and Kevin Phillis (a youngster with a bright future). It is Whitton this Sunday and we hope to show our supporters that we haven't forgotten how to win.
