GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" June 3, 1984 - No. 9
After weeks of frustrating losses we finally notched up our second (long awaited) win. The side was boosted by the return of several key players and put together some good team play resulting in Drew Hicks kicking six goals and new boy Ken Collier kicking four goals. Gerard Toscan just edged Glen MacLeod for the award followed by Robbie Owen, Ken Collier, Drew Hicks and Steve 'Tich' Buchanan.
The Second Grade were able to break the ice and record their first win of the season which made coach Roy Agresta as content as seeing Robbie Flower win the Brownlow Medal. Poor kicking marred the game and hopefully it will not be repeated this week. Maxie Turner won the award with Simon Henderson winning the Coaches' Award followed by Ronnie Murray, Damien Ryan, Bobby Greenwood, Stephen Crack and Roy Agresta.
Lennies' U19's boys kicked the day and the dew off well with a very good win - sitting only percentage out of the four. If they get behind Len they could be in for a very good year. Best players were Robbie Bagatella, Brendan Browne, David Gee and Mick 'Tape It' Agnew.
We regretfully see a great clubman and player in Max Turner leave us this week, and no doubt he will be dearly missed both on and off the field. Best of luck Max.
This week we invade Ardlethan and come away with wins in all three grades again (we hope).
