NAB Challenge 1 is now done and dusted and we can be thankful that it not only resulted in a win in which we showed massive improvement across the board but importantly, we came out of it very much unscathed. I didn't notice any injuries and none have been reported (so far) which is in contrast to recent years when we suddenly developed a lot of injuries throughout the preseason. Now we move on to Alice Springs and a game on Friday week against one of the AFL's power house clubs in Geelong. The fixturing is not a coincidence in light of our commitment with the NT government and past connections with the Territory, made bitter sweet by the difficulties encountered by Liam Jurrah and his troubled last two years and Austin Wonaemirri after the passing of his father and then his close family member Maurice Rioli. The Alice is also the venue for the club's community camp and hopefully, we can nurture and encourage some more of the talented locals to play AFL in the future. The Cats are likely to have a strong side irrespective of their injured list which contains Selwood. Motlop and Christiansen and I expect us to seek to build on the momentum from Friday night and bring in some of our bigger guns if they can come through Thursday's intraclub. This is the list of the players who didn't play in NAB Challenge 1. How many of them will line up in the second game? 1. Jesse Hogan 3. Christian Salem 4. Jack Watts 6. Chris Dawes 7. Jack Viney 10. Shannon Byrnes 11. Mitch Clark * 15. Mitch Clisby 16. Dean Kent 20. Colin Garland * 27. Aidan Riley * 29. Jayden Hunt 35. Luke Tapscott 37. Max Gawn 40. Mark Jamar 43. James Harmes 48. Jack Fitzpatrick 50. Maia Westrupp * players on the club's official injured list and not available for NAB Challenge 2.
