Questions and Answers
Q: Will the team be focussing on young developing players?
A: To a degree yes however an important part of any young players development is ensuring that the team has some good quality experienced players around. This is to ensure that both on and off the field the young developing players experience how to go about preparation and performing week in, week out at a high level. We are fortunate that in the NT we have some quality older players that along with the coaching staff will provide that leadership to the younger group. We will also work in closely with the NTIS and Thunder programs to ensure the best young talent in the NT is given the opportunity to play in the team.
Q: Will the Club need to recruit players from outside the Territory for the team?
A: Our preference is to use Territory players or players playing in the Territory. We do however need to have a balanced squad and once new Head Coach Daniel Archer and other stakeholders have had a chance to analyse the talent available in the Territory, we’ll look at any gaps that may appear and develop a plan of attack from that analysis, but yes our preference is to use Territory talent.
