A summary of match report, with thanks
The Griffith Swans are through to the Riverina Football League reserve grade grand final after thumping Collingullie-Glenfield Park by 52-points at Narrandera. The Swans led at every change before pulling away in the last quarter to prevail 105-53. Charlie Cunial and Casey Moore both kicked three goals for Griffith, while Steve McCanna earned best on ground honours.

The result means the Swans can enjoy a week off while they wait to see which team, they will play in the season decider. Swans coach Dave Dunbar, who made a successful return from a shoulder injury on Saturday, applauded his team’s effort after losing Michael Johns (knee), Trevor Richards (knee) and Dean Villata (shoulder) during the game. “It was a bloody good effort,” Dunbar said. “It felt heaps tighter going into the last quarter because we only had one rotation left on the bench. “It felt like Collingullie could come back at any stage.

“But I don’t know what it is exactly about us. It feels like we’ve got something about us. “We know how to dig deep and close games out.” Dunbar is hopeful of having Saturday’s injured trio and sidelined captain Dean Catanzariti (ankle) available for the grand final, but he knows it will take more than fit bodies to win a premiership.
Also at the weekend, the Griffith Swans under 17s saw their season come to an end with a 27-point loss to the Wagga Tigers at Narrandera on Sunday. The Swans led by five points at the end of the first quarter, but the Tigers dominated the next two to take a 58-point advantage into the final term. To Griffith’s credit, they didn’t stop fighting and added some respectability to the scoreboard before going down 87-60. Nathan Richards, Angus Coldwell and Luke Butcher all booted two goals for the Swans.
