GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" May 19, 1996 - No. 6
A heart breaking result was the only way to describe the narrow loss to Coolamon in the Seniors. There were many factors that contributed to the final result, not at least of all was the poor kicking. Let's hope this loss does not come back to haunt us later in the year.
