All round 6 matches were postponed in the wake of Fridays lockdown directive from the Northern Territory Government. Basically, we have to wait and see what eventuates when the lockdown finishes (at midnight on Monday), Bowden said. Our intentions are to play the full season and were c o n f i d e n t with the support weve had from the club presidents and the general football community that well be able to continue to play football. But its going to require everyone to continue to work together by sharing information and complying with government directions. Bowden would not elaborate on what plans were in place to replay round 6 matches. Midweek fixtures and ex tending the season by one or two weeks could be possible options, but the league is yet to finalise any plans. Bowden (pictured) did say the January representative clash between and NTFL side and SANFL premier Woodville-West Torrens remained a big part of the seasons program despite the restrictions. Were keeping the rep game, though as Ive said, at the moment we have to be a bit careful which way we go, he said. But footy always finds a way and well work with the football community to find a way. Football is so important to Territorians and we will be working with everyone involved with the game and its stakeholders to make it happen. But Bowden said the dark cloud that was the Covid pandemic would be around for some time to come. We have to be honest with ourselves and realise there are Covid difficulties ahead and the best thing for people to do is to be vaccinated, Bowden said. and by continuing to talk to their club leaders and the AFLNT on any query they may have on the effects of Covid in the football community. GREY MORRIS Tigers half Luke Brooks and (inset) new boss Tim Sheens. MR SHEENS TO CLEAN UP WESTS Tigers head of football Tim Sheens is expected to go from the tarmac into what could be a turbulent first day back at Concord as the NRL club continues to deny ongoing speculation surrounding halfback Luke Brooks. Sheens, who was due to arrive home from the UK on Sunday night, is expected to clock on at the clubs headquarters on Monday. And no doubt the Brooks rumours, which the club says are destabilising, will be addressed. It is believed Brooks has assured officials he will be staying, starting with his attendance at the Tigers first off-season training session next week. Despite having engaged in constant and positive talks with Brooks, Tigers management remains frustrated at the continuing speculation about his future and wants it known the 26-year-old will be the clubs halfback next season.
