NTFL Finals – Week 1

Australia
St Mary’s and the Southern Districts Crocs were the big winners in the NTFL Premier League last weekend, with both advancing to the second weekend of the finals series in emphatic fashion.

Sadly, the Darwin Buffaloes had their season curtailed, losing their Elimination Final. The Tiwi Bombers lost their Qualifying Final, but live again into next weekend by virtue of their double chance for finishing the home and away season in third place.

Spurred on by a four-goal haul to former Blue and Demon, Jeff Garlett, the Crocs were too good for the Buffaloes. A four goal to none opening term set the scene, with the Crocs winning each quarter on their way to a 71-point win.

AFLW 4.0 Player Previews: Sabreena Duffy

Australia

Today's AFLW 4.0 feature is on Fremantle Dockers women's player Sabreena Duffy.

Dockers began their 2020 AFLW campaign off well with a 16-point victory over the Cats and then followed it up with a percentage boosting win of 45-points over crosstown rivals Eagles in the first ever AFLW Western RAC Derby.

Duffy was drafted to the club in 2018, with their second selection and no.17 pick overall. 

"I was pretty overwhelmed and was working for a couple of years to hopefully put my hand up to get drafted, so then I guess when I was drafted it was a bit surreal," she said.

"I had my whole family around me and it was just a dream come true, I cried a bit when my name was read out and it was just a dream come true and I was just really excited to get started."

Finalists Locked In For NTFL

Australia
With just a round left in the NTFL Premier League season, the finalists are already decided. Sadly, the wooden spoon is also decided. Battles rage in next weekend’s final round to see which club –Tiwi Bombers, Southern Districts Crocs or Darwin Buffaloes – will snare the double chance and third place.

Regardless of results, Palmerston Magpies will finish as wooden spooners. They sit two games adrift of second last team, Wanderers. Waratah will finish in sixth place after a disappointing season by their standards.

The fascinating battle is the finishing order within the top five. The Nightcliff Tigers and St Mary’s are locked for first and second place regardless of Round 18 results.
