Saturday April 16 2022 WEATHER 71 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Jamie Jones (14 games at Nightcliff), Isaiah Baldock (seven for St Marys), Ethan Bowden (three at St Marys) and Petros Politis (seven at Nightcliff) were also nominated for the award this season. Renouf said the team would be complemented by a couple of later additions, including Tiwi Bombers young gun Anthony Munkura for the second game, and Tennant Creeks Stanley Waistcoast. Its exciting for them. The standard of footy (will be high), were going into the premier under 18 comp in Australia, a great opportunity for them to match it with those guys there, Renouf said. Get a look at the standard they need to get to. He said the squad would be bolstered by NT players al ready down south at boarding school including William Rowlands in South Australia. We trust theyre in a good footy program when we bring them into the team, he said. They will also be competing against some Territory exports, including Alwyn Davey Jr at Oakleigh Chargers. Renouf said the captain would be chosen from a player poll when the team arrived. THE Northern Territorys 31player squad named for round three of the Under 18 NAB League includes a strong number of footballers who shone at the top level in the NTFL 2021-22 season. The NT Thunder Academy will take on Murray Bushrangers on Saturday at Craigieburns Highgate Recreation Reserve from 12.30pm. Before boarding the plane for Melbourne, coach Brent Renouf said the squad included several youngsters who played in the 2021-22 Mens Premier League season, including Ned Stevens (six games with Waratah), Riley Stone (four at Palmerston), Xavier Vallejo (six with St Marys) and Rising Star Award winner Lloyd Johnston (12 at Wanderers).

Picture: Glenn Campbell Ben Cameron FORMER North Melbourne chief executive Greg Miller has revealed dramatic new details of how he hoodwinked AFL House to sign SANFL youngster Nathan Buckley for $10,000 in an Alberton Oval carpark. Kangaroos recruiter Miller signed Buckley on a threeyear deal in 1991, the year before he dominated the SANFL as a premiershipwinning Magarey medallist Miller saw Buckleys potential as a 20-year-old after his first senior practice match in Alice Springs as a Port Adelaide player and handed Buckley $10,000 in cash which he would return years later. Buckley was able to be listed as a Territorian linked to Brisbane, but because the Bears could not trade away talent for 12 months, Miller had to date the form for the following season. He brokered a trade with the Bears for a second-round draft pick but the deal eventually came apart as Buckley exploded with the AFL threatening to penalise him for conduct prejudicial to the draft. Buckley was eventually forced to play for Brisbane for a season before he chose Collingwood over clubs including the Roos, who missed out for a second time. Miller recalled to the Herald Suns Sacked podcast that he used creative solutions to secure Buckley, despite it contravening league rules. He belonged to Brisbane because he came down from the NT under a zoning rule, Miller said. I went over and signed him up and I gave him 10 grand, and he signed a registration form and a clearance form from Brisbane. new details of Buckleys AFL trade saga emerge Nathan Buckley.
