GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" June 6, 1993 - No. 7
We have now got ourselves back on track after our setback at Leeton and came home with all the points against Narrandera. The Under 18's came from behind to record a good win in a fairly close contest all day. Good players were Graham Foley, Norman Campbell, Malcolm Burke, Rodney Best and Matt Kenny.
The 2nds also displayed plenty of character to come from behind in the last quarter to win against good opposition. Colin 'Plugger' Cassidy kicked 3 goals in his first game back after injury. After starting like a greyhound Paul Young played well in his first game back. After settling down, the very accomplished and mature backline kept the pressure on all day. (If I stated anything else about the backline especially with reference to age Michael Thompson threatened libel actions against the author). The best man-on-ground was the smallest Scott Angrove who was in everything right from the first bounce. Others to play well were the Cameron boys and their off-sider Nick Creighton. Chris Noack and Jamie Reid also played well.
The main game saw a much committed and determined side hit the field than the side who played against Leeton in the last encounter. After being up by 77 points at three quarter time and some experimental moves Narrandera added some respectability to their score. Brett 'Swampy' Davis, with a best on ground performance supplied plenty of drive from the centre. Gary Argus was 'everywhere man'. Matt Coad enjoyed the wide open spaces and supplied plenty of the ball to our forwards. Mark O'Connor enjoyed the space in the forward line and kicked 5. The incentive award winners were Jason Wescott, who had a blinder on the wing. The Brown Bros. who relished their new roles and 'Tosco', who very rarely plays badly. Special mention to Paul Rovere, playing his first senior game who didn't put a foot wrong when he came on.
This week its Tuvey Park, let's inflict their first loss!
