GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" August 26, 1984 - No. 21
Gidday ... last Sunday was one of our most successful outings at Coolamon and won the Trifecta with wins in all grades. While U.S. President Ronald Reagan had jokingly said he'd bomb Moscow, our Ronald Reagan none other than Mr. President Graeme Leask was serious as his troops annihilated Coolamon.
Yes what a win it was, as everyone from 1st Grade Man of the Match young Gerry Toscan right through the 2nd Graders and Under 19's to trainer and well-known pensioner Rajah and his assistant Wayne played their part in the fantastic wins.
With twenty contributors throughout the day winners were made so much easier.
The 2nd Grade fixture saw Max Turner win the Mug with a faultless performance and big Drew Hicks who had also played in the U19s earlier turn in a powerful display of marking and kicking not usually seen in 2nd Grade. Craig Murray played outstandingly on the half back flank but it was capt. coach Rocket Roy-Boy Agresta who put in the most gutsiest performance by returning to the field after receiving eight stitches and playing a leading hand in the narrow win.
The Under 19's also won and now are certain of a finals berth but they cannot relax yet as they still have the finals to play and must get greater numbers to training. Lou Testoni won the award in a great team effort from everyone, with Glen Ceccato and Ray Monahan also playing well.
This week we try to take the 'Woof' out of the Bulldogs. Up the Swannies!
