Jacob Dick, Monty Nixon and Andrew Pilbrow have all represented the Northern Territory before and are looking forward to having another opportunity in the NT colours. Nixon, who will miss out in playing in the A grade one-day final for Federal ASbuild on Sunday, said: ''Were looking forward to seeing the standard of cricket from across the country. Although Im missing the final, Im happy to be playing for the Territory. Despite going away for the tournament in the late stages of the local cricket season, the three youngsters arent concerned about missing the next two weeks of local cricket. Dick said: We are still playing cricket while we are over there and we will be playing more matches than we would play here in Alice Springs. Dick will be a middleorder batsman while Nixon and Pilbrow will be used as bowlers. Nixon will be a fast bowler, while Pilbrow will be used as a spinner.
