Aaron Davey THE AFL Indigenous International Rules squad has a strong Territory flavour with seven NT representatives making the initial 33-player squad. Shaun Burgoyne (Hawthorn), Allen Christensen, Steven Motlop, Mathew Stokes (Geelong), Curtly Hampton (GWS Giants), Aaron Davey (Melbourne) and Alwyn Davey (Essendon) are in line to tour Ireland in October. Hawthorn forward Lance Franklin, Fremantle midfielder Stephen Hill, and Sydneys Adam Goodes and Lewis Jetta were among the stars named in coach Michael OLoughlins squad yesterday. Scandal-hit Essendon, who on Tuesday were demoted to ninth place as part of AFL sanctions for their suspect 2012 supplements program, were the best represented club with five players. Bombers ruckman Paddy Ryder was included alongside teammates Courtenay Dempsey, Alwyn Davey, Leroy Jet ta and Nathan Lovett-Murray in the squad that will be trimmed to touring party of 21 after the AFL grand final. Melbournes Aaron Davey who recently announced his retirement was also included in the squad. Ireland will host two International Rules Tests in Cavan on October 19 and at Dublins Croke Park on Oct ober 26. Player participation and support for the hybrid international game has been a growing concern in the AFL, but the league is confident that switching to an allIndigenous team for the series, will change that. Franklin and Goodes, who captained the Australian 2010 touring team that won the series 2-0, were on hand at yesterdays announcement and both expected the stars to line up for Australia. Were very confident that all our best players will be available to play for Australia, and why wouldnt they? Franklin said. Its going to be an unbelievable experience. Its something that well never forget. Defiant Reid vows to defend his reputation in Supreme Court THE AFL Commission has granted a request from Essendon club doctor Bruce Reid for a public hearing. But Reids lawyers have said he would launch Supreme Court action after his bid to have his case heard by an independent arbiter was denied. The AFL and Reid are again at stalemate after more than four hours of talks yes terday. The league has announced the case is now adjourned until October 3. Reid is facing AFL charges related to bringing the game into disrepute. His case was held over from Tuesday night, when the league announced unprecedented sanctions against Essendon, coach James Hird, senior assistant Mark Thom pson and club football manager Danny Corcoran. Soon after Reids talks with the AFL reached a stalemate, the club released a statement attributed to legal firm Perry Maddocks Trollope. Counsel for Dr Reid applied for a prompt release of the transcript of argument and the commissioners ruling to enable the early issue of Supreme Court proceedings seeking judicial review of the decision and the appointment of a recently retired Supreme Court judge to hear and decide the charges against Dr Reid, the statement read. Dr Reid is adamant that he is innocent and wishes to defend the allegations against him in a public hearing. The AFL later said a com mission sub-committee had denied Reids request for an independent person, such as a retired Supreme Court judge, to hear the charges. Dr Reid also applied for any hearing of the charge against him to be in public. The sub-Committee granted this application, the league announced. On Tuesday night, Essen don were taken out of the finals, fined $2 million and has lost draft picks. Hird was suspended for 12 months, while Corcoran was suspended for four months and Thompson was fined $30,000. Reids case has added importance to him due to his reputation as a doctor. He has been Essendons club doctor for more than 30 years.
