GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Sou'wester" July 9, 1978 - No. 11
By Swan: Our excellent wet weather win over Coolamon last Sunday was marred by an unfortunate accident to our smart young rover Jeff Mitchell.
Quite clearly we wanted it understood the Coolamon player had nothing to do with the incident and we hope we will soon have Jeff back in our side to help us fight our way into the four.
John "Ducky" O'Donnell was voted best afield with good performances from Jeff Mitchell, Bob Greenwood, Neil Thompson, Ian Wade and Roy Agresta.
Our Reserve Grade crushed the Grasshoppers in a one sided affair where we had good players everywhere including Darryl Collis, Glenn Luhrs, John Seidel, Robin "Sparrow" Parisotto and Terry Bennett.
The Under 19's set up these excellent wet displays with their best wet game of the season when they completely over run a gritty Coolamon. Their win was dominated by Maurie Wood, Terry Hicken, Rob Vico and his brother Sam and David "Snow" Taylor.
Today's test against the Magpies will tell if we are good enough to make the grade ... we know it is between us and them.
