The contribution the past and present players have made to this Club and in representing the Northern Territory has been unwavering and this weekend we mark 10 seasons by wearing a commemorative jumper.
It was pleasing to get the win after three disappointing losses, but after any game, we review the game as a group and identify areas for improvement.
For the first time, TIO Stadium will host both our VFL W and NEAFL sides.
The challenges the players from Tiwi face on a weekly basis are like no other.
I’d like to share what our Alice Springs based players get up to on a weekly basis and the amazing opportunity the Redtails Right Tracks program provides.
Our guys show great commitment to the program, to do what they love each week.
The coaches structure we have this season allows us to give the players important detailed information on different phases of the game and make adjustments to positional or structures quickly.
We are proud Territorians and because of that, have focused our recruiting on securing exciting Territory talent.

Round 21 marks the final game of the Home and Away NEAFL season.
It’s always tough playing away and we have adequately prepared for the game.
We want them (the players) to feel well supported and have every belief that they are capable of great things.
Our focus is firmly on facing an in-form Swans outfit this weekend.
This game is critical for both sides, which should make for some desperate exciting footy.
The messages this week will in part be linked to Shannon Rioli’s 100th NT Thunder games.
