Skipper Peter MacFarlane (broken leg), Karl Lohde and Raphael Clarke (hamstrings), Grant Weeks and boom recruit Jackson Geary are all out of the twilight game. Clarkes younger brother Marius, one of the best in Saints Division 1 win over Wanderers, has been elevated to the senior side, along with speedster Justin Cooper. Liam Flanagan, the son of former St Marys defender and Southern Districts premiership player Darren Flanagan, is tipped to play his first Premier League game. Palmerston added Alwyn Davey, Justin Emery and Kirsten Hunter to its list ahead of the 5.30pm clash with the reigning premier. Southern Districts added AFL draft hopeful Marcus Hamilton and workaholic centreman Tom Gleeson to the 22 that beat the Tiwi Bombers in last weeks season opener. The Crocodiles meet a desperate Wanderers in tomorrows 3.10pm clash at Marrara, who welcome back Brad Vassal, Aaron Motlop and Liam Patrick from Thunder duties. The Eagles will be without the multi-skilled Marlon Motlop and Keelan Fejo as they go in search of their first win. The Tiwi Bombers and Darwin have made multiple changes for tomorrows clash at Nguius Real Estate Central Oval on Bathurst Island. The Bombers have made nine changes for the 3pm game, including Jono Mullins, Paul Scanlon, Billy Barden who are unavailable, injured quartet Dion Munkara, Alistair Darcy, Aussie Wonaeamirri and Chris Miler and Stephen Stassi and Keiran Apuatimi who were dropped. Better news is the return of premiership players Roy Kantilla and Michael Dunn, while former AFL Crow John Meesen will make his NTFL debut with the Bombers. The Buffaloes also lost some first choice players. Former Carlton defender Joe Anderson, ex-North Melbourne goalsneak Matt Campbell and key position player Nick Stockdale are unavailable and Thomas Long is injured. Key position players Adam Lovison and Luke Clark are welcome additions for the double Blues, along with Dean Holyman and Juan Darwin. Nightcliff added Centralian pair Desmond Nandy and Gibson Turner to their side to play Waratahs at Gardens Oval on Sunday. Waratahs added big marking forward Waylon Manson, Mitch Handby, Lachlan Embleton and Sam Talbot. Former St Kilda small forward Stephen Milne will line up for St Marys during the 2014-15 NTFL season Picture: GEORGE SALPIGTIDIS FORMER St Kilda goalkicker Stephen Milne will line up with NTFL premier St Marys this season. English-born Milne booted 574 goals in a 275-game career with St Kilda, which made him one of the AFLs most dangerous forwards. But the four-time leading goalkicker with the AFL Saints and two-time all-Australian never played in a premiership despite being part of three grand final sides. St Kilda fans will argue for years on how he nearly won a flag for them when a bouncing footy evaded him late in the tied 2010 grand final. Now 34, Milne played in a premiership with Bendigo League club Strathfieldsaye this season, booting 89 goals in the process. Milne has kept in contact with former St Kilda teammate and St Marys premiership player Raphael Clarke, a big reason why he is making the trek north. St Marys coach Rick Nolan is rapt to have a player of Milnes calibre on his list. Getting Stephen to Darwin wasnt that hard because of his friendship with Clarkey and he wanted to come, Nolan said. But its great that hes signed with the club, even if it will only be five or six games he can teach our young blokes a hell of a lot. Nolan said the positive in signing Milne had been offset to a degree by inspirational skipper Peter MacFarlanes broken leg. Losing Noodles for six weeks will hurt us, just because of his courage in the face of fire like he showed by playing on with a broken leg last week. The bloke was even master of ceremonies at a post-match function when still in great pain. Hes a champion of our footy club. Long trip north ... but Milnes still a Saint By GREY MORRIS
