Darwin born and bred, Malcolm Rosas Jnr, who made his NT Thunder debut in 2018, has become the first Territorian signed by the Gold Coast SUNS under the new provisions.
As a valued member of our Thunder team, it is important that we share with you some details regarding today’s announcement.
AFLNT can confirm it is looking at the talent pathway and team structure moving forward.
NT Thunder co-captain Abraham Ankers has topped off the 2019 season to claim his second successive Ilett Medal, while Katie Streader has held on by a single vote to be a deserving winner of the Thunder Women’s Club Champion.
Abraham Ankers has been duly recognised when he was awarded 2019 NEAFL Team of the Year captaincy honours and finished third in the League’s MVP.
A brave NT Thunder has lost its final game of the NEAFL season by 33 points to Aspley in Round 21, losing 17.16 (118) to 12.13 (85).
In what is expected to be Will Farrer’s 50th outing in NT Thunder colours, there are just two changes to the side for its final NEAFL game against Aspley.
Leading into the final Round for both Thunder teams, there are a number of players who will be pushing to pass fitness tests.
“We’ve been able to blood a lot of our young, talented guys throughout our system and it’s been awesome watching them develop and really take the game on and get better as players and become pretty handy senior footballers,” said Abe Ankers.
An 11 goals to two first-half has helped lift reigning premier Southport to a 64-point victory over NT Thunder in Round 20 of the NEAFL competition, 20.20 (140) to 11.10(76).
‘If you are not winning, you are learning’ are words that I have reflected on from the moment coaching became a passion.
NT Thunder has made just two changes to its line-up to take on the Southport Sharks in Darwin on Saturday night in the last home game of the 2019 NEAFL season.
Still some minor injuries lurking under the injury cloud for both sides ahead of the weekend.
“He just always told me to have a go really, go out there and don’t leave anything behind” – Brandon Rusca talks about his experiences with the senior Thunder team so far.
A masterful second half has helped Sydney University to a big 88-point win in Darwin, 21.14 (140) to 7.10 (52).
