The much-anticipated TIO Stadium match scheduled for Saturday was officially postponed on Wednesday following an outbreak of coronavirus cases in Melbourne and then on Thursday transferred to the SCG. However, the Suns are adamant that their relationship with the Top End extends further than a single match. The relationship has already seen Territorians Janet Baird, Malcolm Rosas Jr and Joel Jeffrey drafted by the Gold Coast club. And school and community visits over the past week have shown that the club is committed to growing the game in the Top End. Over the past few days, AFL and AFLW Suns stars have worked hard to inspire aspiring stars, doing drills and giving out gifts at plenty of schools. Kate Surman was among those to engage in the community, while also training with the NT Thunder girls originally set to play the curtain raiser game ahead of the AFL match. Interacting with the young kids, its always nice to take some time off and interact with these young superstars, Surman said. Its beautiful up here. A little hotter than what were used to but it has a really good community feel. A few of us trained with the NT Thunder girls and theres a lot of talent there. Its really important for us to come up and give our knowledge about whats needed to get to that next level. Suns ruckman Matt Conroy also spent plenty of time visiting schools teaching drills and handing out Suns gear. Its rewarding. Getting to get out and do stuff in the community and see them smile and laugh is always good, Conroy said. Its good to expose the Suns brand and get the kids seeing it ahead of the game coming up here. Suns general manager of consumer and community Jane McGough said the clubs relationship with the NT was about more than just playing a game in the region. For us at the Suns, the NT partnership is about more than just a game, McGough said. There are many other ele ments to our commitment to Darwin and the NT and although we cant play the game this weekend, were still committed to helping grow the game in the region. Thats why we still have player out attending schools and community groups in the area. Its important that we keep the community healthy and active and hopefully inspire the next generation of Suns AFL and AFLW players in the Northern Territory. Suns share the love in Top End NATHANIEL CHAMBERS NORTHERN TERRITORY TODAY TERRITORY TODAY 10 AM YESTERDAY lOAMTODAY 10 AM TOMORROW SEVEN-DAY TIDES SUN AND MOON Full Last 1/4 New First 1/4 AUSTRALIA TODAY 0 () - () WORLD YESTERDAY TERRITORY YESTERDAY w w w . b o m . o v . a u COASTAL AND LAND WEATHER WARNINGS: 1300 659 214 TROPICAL CYCLONE INFORMATION: 1300 659 211
