A summary of match report, with thanks
A wet Ganmain Sportsground provided the perfect environment for the Griffith Swans yesterday, but it wasn’t enough for them to get close to the in-form home side. The Swans suffered their third demoralising loss in as many weeks when Ganmain-Grong Grong-Matong played over the top of them and stormed home by 63 points. 
The Griffith boys were only one goal down at the first break, but GGGM outscored them heavily in each of the remaining terms. “I was happy with how the boys played – they really fought hard as much as they could,” Swans coach said. “The score is what it is but it’s always a battle to go out there and play on their home ground. “We’re a pretty small team and wet weather football really suits us nicely because we’re really up and under sort of side – so we did have a good shot at it.” 
A week off is about to give the Swans a chance to regroup, but Orton said little could be done about the biggest problem – an ever-changing line-up. “It’s been pretty hard three weeks with the boys – it's hard to play consistent football when you’re changing the team week-by-week,” he said. ‘Each of the boys knows his role but the other players around him haven’t had a chance to learn what he’s likely to do next or which way he’s going to go. “When guys play together every week, they just about know what the other players’ next thought is and that’s when good teams really do well.”
Many changes are to come in the next few weeks, with Andrew Cappello and Steven McCanna heading overseas and a handful of players still out with injury. But, outside the team structure issue, Orton was pleased with his side’s progress and believed they would come back stronger after the break.
