GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" August 19, 1990 - No. 18

Well, we got the trifecta again but at a price. Bad luck Joey (Agresta), let's hope it's not as bad as you first thought. The Under 18's had another good win. But they are suffering the same disease as our senior counterparts, inaccuracy in front of goal. It must be a great worry to all coaches to see so many set shots going begging. The accolades for last week against Narrandera went to Tony Butcher, Dean Owen, Christian Files and Darren Virago.

The Seconds had a huge win and had so many players they were able to lend Narrandera a couple to make up their numbers. 'Snow' (Taylor) played a great captain's game and obviously relished his return to the paddock after his long enforced holiday. Paul 'Dame Nellie' Young made yet another comeback and was best player without a doubt Tony 'La Dolce Vita' Hicks, who got the money which he no doubt needed badly and young Spanner (Spencer) managed to stay on his feet a bit more and picked up the mug which he made good use of. Best players for Narrandera: Bruno Ceccato and Bob Berton.

The Firsts had an unimpressive win. Robbie Owen seems to like playing against Narrandera as he repeated his performance of the first round and picked up the first prize money in S.L.P.I. Award donated by AMP, but he was closely followed by Wayne Bottcher, Gerry Toscan and 'Splash' Collins who took some absolute 'pearlers' of marks. They were ably supported by Mick Murphy, Peter King, 'Pancho' Prest and Ronnie Roe.

The Netballers were allowed to play but were outclassed. Best players were Margie Graham, Jenny Jeffrey and Peta Bennett. The Coolamon saga is not yet over. The girls would really appreciate a large crowd to support them today. Don't  forget our coming events.

Next Saturday after the EWK game which has been transferred to a Saturday, there is the Red Faces / No Talent Night.
