The pair, both Darwin Buffettes defenders, are hoping for a big crowd of family and friends at TIO Stadium when their side faces second-placed Tracy Village tomorrow from noon. Its a special feeling and its taken a few seasons for me to get there, Ah Wang said. Their careers have taken totally different paths, with Ah Wang debuting in the 2006-07 season and Collinson two years later in 2008-09. But injuries to Ah Wang helped her fellow defender catch up on games. I fractured my ankle last season at about Round 7, I missed most of the season but came back for the grand final, Ah Wang said. Best memories include playing in two grand finals both losing ones as well as representing the Northern Territory in 2009 and 2011. Ah Wang felt womens football was heading in the right direction, with participation numbers on the rise. When I first started playing there were only three teams, now theres eight, she said. Both players have family ties to the club and couldnt imagine playing in anything other than the double blue guernsey. Collinson is the sister of Joe Collinson and Ah Wang is the aunty of Kelvin Williams. They actually play together and theyre best friends, Collinson said. Buffs is a family club, so all of our family either play or have played at the club. We get along to their premier league games every week, its been great to see them win the past few weeks. And we have learnt a fair bit off both of them. The Buffettes are currently sixth on the womens ladder with a win-loss record of 3-5. Some of their best players this season include captain Lucy Adam and vice-captain Jemma Iacono, while Shay Warburton has booted a teamhigh 12 majors. Theres definitely potential to reach the grand final again, its all about putting in the hard work, Collinson said. By JORDAN McARDLE Forward duo Stephen Milne and Darren Ewing (inset) are both out for St Marys this weekend against Palmerston NTFL premier St Marys sprung a surprise last night when they named their former player Nathan Lovett-Murray in the side to play Palmerston on Sunday. Lovett-Murray was tipped to return to the Magpies this season after a brief stint in the vertical black and white stripes two seasons ago. But Saints have won the day, almost 12 years since leaving the former Essendon player out of their successful 2002-03 grand final side. Saints selectors also added Karl Lohde, Jackson Geary, Justin Cooper, Luke Stapleton and Anthony Long, the son of former star Steven Long, to an extended 25-man squad. Darren Ewing, Cameron Ilett and Shannon Rioli will miss with Thunder restrictions, while Stephen Milne and Nick Yarran are out. Palmerston will be without skipper Piere Liddle and speedy Lachlan Dhurrkay for the 4pm clash, but get ruckman-forward Cameron Cloke and utility Justin Emery back. Wanderers get midfielder Brad Vassal back for Sundays must-win game against Southern Districts at Freds Pass. But the Motlop cousins, Shannon, Aaron and Daniel will miss, along with Eddie Sansbury and Liam Patrick. Southern Districts named former Richmond and Adelaide utility Richard Tambling for his first game of the season, along with small forward Davin Hall. Waratahs wasted no time naming defender Errin Wasley-Black in their lineup to tackle Nightcliff in tomorrows televised game at TIO Stadium. Five Tiwi Islanders have also been included: David Kantilla, Alex Puruntatameri, Alistair Darcy Bronson Mungatopi and Adrian Mungatopi. Nightcliff picked former AFL Hawk Derrick Wanganeen for his first NTFL game and welcomed back Seb Guilhaus, Caleb Hart and Baydon Ngalkin for the 3.30pm game. The Buffaloes will be without Todd Miles and Linc Withers for tomorrows crucial twilight game against the Tiwi Bombers. But they get Ben Archard and Luke Clark back. The Bombers lost defender Nick McElwee, but regained Paul Scanlon, Willie Rioli Jr, Dan McLinden and Zac Caldwell for the 5.55pm game. Saints wheel out secret weapon for clash By GREY MORRIS
