    Feel free to merge with the other threads (I couldn't find them) but MJ Rioli makes his Premier League debut for St Marys this weekend. Really hope he goes well!

    Fair effort. What does the standard of that league compare to?

    That's probably a debate in itself but it's a very solid league. Not a whole heap of 15 year olds play senior football at St Marys.

    My tips... - He plays a cracker of a debut season 2021 and helps win the flag, and wins the Norm Smith in 2022, narrowly beating Dusty.

    (I dare to dream)

    For those interested AFLNT have the games on their YouTube channel.

    You can access via https://www.aflnt.com.au/ or you can search AFLNTv in YouTube

    NITV - SBS sometimes show replays of games but I am not sure of broadcast times.

    Small Darwin school makes huge AFL impact

    http://www.skynews.com.au/news/loca...mall-darwin-school-makes-huge-afl-impact.html

    Maurice Junior has already spent time at Richmond, where his late father won the Norm Smith in 1982.

    'A couple of weeks ago I came back from there, they're giving me a couple of drills and fitness stuff that I've been doing every Monday after school,' he said.

    'I just want to know how to kick on my left, my left's not that good, my dad was a left footer but I'm a right footer.'

    Good signs. things are just going well in 2017. Hope it's only the start of better things. Including Junior being as good as his dad.

    Don't think I've ever cried so much as I have in the last month. Teary eyed again.

    Not sissy girl crying where my face crinkles up and I need to be held.

    Proper man tears.

    Saw a few NT senior games when I was up in Darwin... I was surprised by how good the standard was, although not a lot of defensive pressure.

    Are you sure?

    NT Thunder are the NEAFL team there. And even NEAFL is a step below SANFL imo.

    KB is out a year, as MJ not eligible to play until 2021. He would be only be playing in the last flag of the 5peat.

    If your 15 and playing seniors against men, youre pretty good for your age in most cases. That being said, I dont know the amount and standards of under 16s and such up there

    They should bring him to St Patrick's College in Ballarat where Daniel boarded and spent his high school years. It's a breeding ground for AFL players and he could play for The Rebels in the TAC CUP on an AFL standard surface.
