GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" April 14, 1985 - No. 1
This Sunday commences the 1985 RFL season. After an up and down season last year the Owen Toyota Swans under coach Ian Geddes are looking forward to home and away matches. Once again we welcome Scott Barber from unemployment paradise in Darwin. Kevin Trafford, with features of the girl on redhead matches, has come to the Swans for the season.
We also welcome Peter Telford (Broken Hill) and Neil Bruce (Western Suburbs) to the Owen Toyota Swans.
After taking off the Whitton Knockout defeating Leeton in the final, the Swans were left looking like the main street of Tibooburra in the drought at the hands of the Coolamon Grasshoppers - trial game defeat.
This Sunday we meet the reigning premiers Ganmain at the Ex-Servicemen's Oval. With a mobile side the Swans will play havoc with the Lions and give them a warm welcome to 1985. Up The Swannies!
