AFL Cairns Explore New Territory



The footy loving community in Cairns, and by extension the whole of North Queensland, were disappointed to lose their prized AFL premiership match when the 2019 AFL draw was released last year. However, far from taking a defeatist attitude, AFL Cairns has been involved in substantial talks with the NTFL about a potential team entering the Territory’s Premier League.

As reported in the Cairns Post, “The top echelon of AFL Cairns footballers are open to playing 12 months of the year if a Far North-based club is permitted to enter the Northern Territory Football League. AFL Cairns officials have held preliminary discussions about including a Cairns team.”

The Geelong Advertiser reported that, “AFL Cairns officials have held preliminary discussions about including a Far North-based team in the Northern Territory Football League competition. AFL Northern Territory CEO Stuart Totham is aware of the advances from Cairns that have progressed over the [summer].”

Dockers too sharp for Lions

Australia

The Fremantle Dockers were too sharp for the Brisbane Lions, as they scored a 27-point victory at their first home match at Fremantle Oval on a beautiful day.

Lions were stronger than the Dockers in the first term and kicked three goals to one with the wind.

The Dockers had their chances when they had the football but could not capitalise. Nat Exon scored the first goal for the Lions and first of the match.

Soon after Sabrina Frederick-Traub set Jess Wuetschner up for goal and Wuetschner kicked the Lions second goal.

Dockers were able to get on the board with their first goal via Ashlee Atkins. Lions responded straightaway with a goal of their own from Ally Anderson.

At quarter time the Lions had an advantage of 11 points.

Dogs notch up classy win over Cats

Australia

The Western Bulldogs notched up their second win of AFLW 3.0, as they defeated Geelong Cats by 18 points at the Whitten Oval in breezy conditions.

It was a hard slog to start the first quarter. Cats had a lot of the football especially in their forward half of the ground but had only a goal to show from it in the opening term.

The Dogs defense was under significant pressure in the first term. Phoebe McWilliams in her Cats debut nailed through the first goal of the match.

Aisling Utri was awarded with a 50m penalty and slotted through the opening goal for the Dogs. Cats were up by two points over the Western Bulldogs at quarter time.

Dees too strong for struggling Pies

Australia

Melbourne pulled off a 17-point gutsy win over Collingwood at Victoria Park in windy conditions in front of 7,728 football fans.

Melbourne’s defense was amazing all match and they made it hard for Collingwood’s forwards to get a hold of the footy.

The Collingwood women’s team made their debut at Victoria Park and it was the first time both women’s teams played at the iconic ground.

Snakes and Ladders Finish Coming Up – NTFL

Australia
After 16 rounds of the NTFL season, only Nightcliff and Southern Districts have locked in their finals bookings. But after costly losses on the weekend for the Darwin Buffaloes, Tiwi Bombers and Palmerston Magpies and an important win for Waratah have seen a fascinating race for finals places emerge.

The Buffaloes will reach the finals, but are now in danger of losing the double chance. The Tiwi Bombers must win at least one of their remaining matches to reach the finals, but would be better with two wins. Palmerston can get there if they win both remaining matches and other teams slip. In short, if a team steps on a snake they can drop badly. Win and they can climb the ladder to finals.
