GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" July 21, 1991 - No. 14
Our excursion to Maher Oval was one of our most successful for a good number of years with our fabulous netballers emulating the Australian team and recording a great win in cold and windy conditions to cement a spot in the top four of the ladder in what could only be described as a good team effort.
Terry's "Travelling Wilbury's' notched up a gutsy win to consolidate top spot on the ladder. Young Hilley (Damien Hill), Butchie Boy, 'Axel' Foley and Jason 'Stewie' Vaccari got more involved in the action than Axel from Guns 'n Roses would at a concert. The win had well wishes and supporters mobbing Terry's house till the wee hours of the morning.
Alan Parr's Second Grade lost the plot somewhere in the blood and the mud and the tears and paid a terrible price with the four points and a chance to sit on top of the ladder all gone. Young Mal Irvin and the great General (Brett McAlister) suffered injuries and were forced from the field. This allowed Brian 'Mr Stickers' Corner to slot into the fullback position and play as if he was a reincarnation of the great Geoff Southby. Colin Cassidy 'Ziggy Marley' Signor, Davey Overs, Mark Tyndall and Chris 'F-F' Files won the awards as no one became a dad this week.
In what a noted supporter called 'the best win of the year' First Grade clinched a win to enable the side to have a 3-game buffer over Turvey Park on the ladder. Andrew 'I'll be home soon' Romagnolo, Shane 'Lover Boy' Ruyg and Darrell 'Pin' Collins all kicked three goals apiece. Ricky 'Bird' Burdett was no 'pillon' passenger in the side playing close to his best game for the club since landing on the doorstep as a young skinny lad from the Barellan back blocks.
