Lol.. When did Andrew leave North to play for Suns?

AFL likely to give Darwin zone to struggling Gold Coast

I must say I think this is a good idea. Brisbane were given access to NT players back in the early 90s and it allowed them to recruit exceptional players like Nathan Buckley and Darryl White. Giving us Darwin should really help in terms of the talent coming through our academy and it's probably equivalent to GWS being given the Riverina/Canberra zone which continues to produce AFL quality players every year. Plus there's no go-home factor if these players want to continue their AFL careers so that should help with retention too. Some of the players we could have recruited over the last few years if we had access to the NT zone include Nakia Cockatoo, Zac Bailey Brandon Parfitt, Willie Rioli and Daniel Rioli.

Hopefully the AFL makes this happen, even if it's only short term.

I hope we get the Darwin access for this draft as I am really keen on Malcom Rosas Jr.

Kid is lightning quick and takes the game on. We could do with his leg speed.
