Number up for Pies recruits COLLINGWOOD recruits Quinten Lynch and Jordan Russell will wear the same numbers with theMagpies in 2013 as they did with their previous AFL clubs. The Magpies have given formerWest Coast forward Lynch the No. 21 jumper vacated by Sharrod Wellingham, who has been traded to the Eagles. And ex-Blue Russell has been handed the opportunity to wear No. 2 following the retirement of Chris Tarrant. Former Hawk Clinton Youngwill wear No. 14 the Pies.

The former St Marys and Sturt champion was admitted to intensive care at Royal Darwin Hospital last week after suffering a heart attack. Doctors feared for the life of the 60-year-old. But the news is better this week, with Graham likely to make a full recovery. Its almost a miracle, the way Michael has recovered, St Marys president Shaun Hardy said. And it looks like he will not need major surgery, which again is testimony to his will and tremendous courage. GREYMORRIS Former AFL star to debut in NTFL FOOTBALL ByGREYMORRIS Former Western Bulldogs player Brodie Moles makes his debut for the Darwin Buffaloes this weekend DARWINS rise from NTFL easybeats to big improvers has continued with former Western Bulldogs midfielder Brodie Moles set to make his debut in a Buffalo jumper tomorrow. Moles was only delisted by the Bulldogs two months ago after a 17-game AFL career at the Western Oval. Former Geelong big man Scott Simpson will play his second game for the club. The 196cm ruckmanforward will take the first bounce against St Marys at TIO Stadium. Three Campbell brothers will play for the Buffaloes after key defender Joel Campbell declared his fitness after knee soreness. Former North Melbourne forward Matt and Pioneer premiership player Paul make up the Campbell trio. Former Southern Districts utility Joe Collison has been named on a forward flank as Darwin look to bounce back hard from the 36-goal loss to St Marys in Round 2. Former St Kilda defender Raphael Clarke returns to St Marys after nine years away while big-marking spearhead Matthew Ferguson is back in the side. Veteran midfielder Lin coln Withers and defender Davey OSullivan are back in the Waratahs side. Withers played on a permit with the Tiwi Bombers last season. Another big in for Tahs as they prepare for Wanderers at TIO Stadium tomorrow night is former Eastlake ruckman Mitchell Frail. The 196cm, 23-year-old beanpole will add much-needed height and experience to the following division. Wanderers, still reeling from the four premiership points they forfeited for fielding an unregistered player in Round 3, lost clever forward Chris Dunne to player management rules. But big-marking spearhead Adam Cook is a welcome addition for tomorrows 6pm game. Nightcliff added Yuendemu pair Sebastian Watson and Alan Dickson to its starting 22 for tomorrows key game against the unbeaten Tiwi Bombers at Gardens Oval. The Tigers snapped a fourgame losing drought against Palmerston last week and will be keen to avenge the 84-point loss to the Bombers in Round 2. Cameron Cloke is back in the Palmerston team for Sundays tough assignment against the Damian Cupidoled Crocodiles at Freds Pass. Joyce axed for Tippett THE Kurt Tippett controversy has forced AFL club Adelaide to axe untried utility Nick Joyce. Joyce, 19, who used to be the Crows mascot and worked as a junior development officer at the club, was delisted yesterday by Adelaide. The Crows inability to trade Tippett to a rival club forced them to make another delisting. It was not our intention to delist Nick, because Kurt Tippett remains on our primary list, we had to delist another player by todays deadline, Adelaides list manager David Noble said. The club is working closely with Nicks management and discussing the variety of options, with Nicks welfare being of the highest importance. Noble said the Crows would re-draft Joyce if allowed by the AFL.
