A summary of match report, with thanks
Griffith are through to their second consecutive Riverina League grand final courtesy of a 22-point win over Coolamon on Saturday. The Swans moved within one win of ending the club’s 16-year premiership drought with an impressive second semi-final victory over the Hoppers. Griffith withstood a couple of serious challenges from Coolamon to run out winners 10.11 (71) to 7.7 (49) at Narrandera Sportsground. It was the Swans’ high-pressure football that again brought their opposition undone, as their frantic chasing and ferocious tackling proved too much for Coolamon to handle.
Griffith coach Will Griggs believes the Swans are in a much better position than 12 months ago to break the club’s drought. “It’s good. It’s a bit different this year. Last year was a bit of an unknown, a lot of blokes didn’t have much final experience but this year we can be a bit more relaxed and enjoy the next two weeks.” Griggs said there was no secret to the Swans’ success. “It was just pressure. It was super,” he said. “Our forward-line pressure was really good. Young Blakey Argus, you don’t want to get tackled by him. 
He’s a strong kid. It was pressure across the park. Despite playing in a losing team, Coolamon forward Joe Redfern was the best playing on the ground, kicking six of their seven goals. Max Hillier and Josh Buchanan also had strong games for the Hoppers.
