 SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" July 31, 1966 - No. 14 

Despite the big counter attraction at Narrandera, we had a big crowd to see us gain our second win this year over Ganmain.

A strong, blustering cross-breeze spoilt the game as a spectacle, but the fans were fully entertained by a close, hard-fought game.

Our thanks to Ganmain for co-operating in applauding Vic Hathaway on to the ground for his 200th first grade game with Griffith.

Sid Robins and Bob Little were our best, but the team had many good players - you need them to beat Ganmain.

It was pleasing to see "Secco" back in action again. He showed he is nearly at his top once again.

What the second 18 game lacked in skill and spectacle, a lot of fumbling being caused by the wind, the teams compensated for with keen endeavour and in a close, exciting finish we got up to win by six points. Our best were Denny Dreyer, Mick Newman, Ray Smith and Jim Eley (staging a comeback).

Our thirds started the hat-trick of wins when they won the early, unofficial game 27 to 9.
