Deepest condolences to Janette and family on the loss of their beloved Griffo!

Griffo played for Associates through the 1970s, amassing over 100 1st grade games and one game for WA. In the mid-1970s he re-established and coached a Colts team at the Club and this team was the forerunner of numerous successful Colts teams over the following decades. He was a formable tight head prop and after returning to Sydney, toured with the Wallabies in 1982. He was a true character of the Club and a good friend to many. When interviewed in the weekly rugby magazine after his retirement, he was asked his favourite club and toughest opponent. His answer was Associates and Dave Gleghorn, the father of Dirk. He stayed in touch with the Club and flew to Perth to watch the 1st Grade win the 2018 Grand Final.

RIP Griffo
