Willie Rioli Snr reappointed Head Coach of the Club for the next 2 seasons.



Toll Tiwi Bombers Football Club President Mick Burns today announced the reappointment of Willie Rioli Snr to the Head Coach role of the Club for the next 2 seasons.


Burns also announced that in conjunction with the Essendon AFL club Willie Rioli will travel to Melbourne on Monday as a guest of the Bombers spending time with the coaches and football department in addition to legend Kevin Sheedy culminating in being in the coaching box at the MCG for the showcase Indigenous clash with Richmond.


Rioli, an NTFL Player Life Member, Nichols Medallist and multi Premiership Player with St Marys has also enjoyed the ultimate coaching result with a Premiership with the Tiwi Island Football League powerhose Imalu Tigers. Also a member of the 1988 NT Bi-Centennial team and drafted by Hawthorn Football Club in the early 90’s, Rioli played with success for South Fremantle in the WAFL.


Burns said the Club was extremely satisfied with Willie Rioli’s efforts and commitment to the difficult and challenging role in his first Premier League season.


“We are keen to build on the improved player confidence and community support generated by Willie who took the side back into the NTFL finals” said Burns.


Burns said “Willie Rioli’s ability to overcome major logistical challenges on the island including attending training sessions at each of the 3 island training venues throughout the whole season was critical to improved player and coaching performance over the season”


The Toll Tiwi Bombers climbed from 7th position after Round 10 to finish the minor round in 4th position losing to the eventual premiers despite having more scoring shots.

60 players were used last season including 15 first time Tiwi Island footballers.

Brenton Toy appointed Senior Assistant Coach.

Burns also announced that following a Board review of the coaching structure in consultation with Rioli the Club has also appointed former NTFL Premiership Coach Brenton Toy as Senior Assistant Coach. Other positions will be appointed before July when a pre-season fitness program will commence on both islands. The Club has 15 players currently with southern season clubs in Victoria, South Australia and in the Katherine Big Rivers FL


The Club is not expecting Willie Rioli Jnr to be available in Season 2015/16 after he joined SANFL club Glenelg on a 2 year contract.

Round 12-Big Win over Nightcliff-Back to Tiwi Style Football

The Board and Players wish everyone a Very Happy Christmas and a Healthy and Successful New Year. A special good wish to the Sponsors, Members and Volunteers without whom the Club could not operate to give the Tiwi players and community the enjoyment of the representative team.

An early Christmas present was provided by the Toll Tiwi Bombers players in Round 12 with a classic free spirited victory over equal second placed Nightcliff.  Coach Willie Rioli Senior demanded better discipline but at the same time encouraged the high risk style football  which is a feature of Tiwi football  (and sometimes the undoing) of the Toll Tiwi Bombers.
The fierce determination  of the players was evident and provided much Christmas Joy to their enthusiastic supporters in spades. It may surprise some Toll Tiwi Bomber followers  of the high number of people based interstate  as well as within  the NT who watch the games at TIO Stadium live on AFLNTTV. It is done on YouTube with excellent David Kennedy & Grey Morris led commentary.  The number of excited messages both during the game and afterwards to the Club shows there is a high level of passionate support which extends outside TIO Stadium.
As we do most weeks battling a much taller and heavier opposition and down 6 points at half-time the Toll Tiwi Bombers threw caution to the wind to out-run and use classic Tiwi flair to kick 17 goals to 4 after half-time. The margin of 71 points was stunning against the second placed Tigers.

In what was an impressive workload share the standout performances were many although highlighted by 10 goal full-forward  Mathias Liddy, midfielder Owen Henry Jnr and running defender Dion Munkara. The defensive group played their best game for the season with Vivian Kerinaiua, Jason Puruntatameri,  Adam Tipungwuti,  Sylvani Babui and Sam Gill supporting Dion Munkara and playing as a genuine and committed  unit over 4 quarters.

Ruckmen Zac Caldwell and Steven Miles were key parts of the victory refusing to be intimidated  by the size and reputation of their Nightcliff opponents. Their stats might not have been huge but their ability to nullifv the opposition rucks was critical to setting up the victory.
I said last week “the Round 11 result means we are going to have overcome the odds to play finals ” so the reaction of the players to take on the second placed side with flair and confidence generates a lot of hope in the remaining 6 games.

Pints Football Club – Aligned Club

The Chairman and Board acknowledge the welcoming manner of the Pints Football Club which field teams in Division 1 and 2 grades. They provide the venue for mainland based Toll Tiwi Bomber players to train and play if not required by our Premier League team. The manner Pints officials led by President Clive Fowler and Coach Chris Baksh welcome and involve our players deserves credit.

234 NTFL game veteran Anthony Vallejo is a regular with the Pints team whilst current Toll Tiwi Bomber players Zac Caldwell, Steven Miles, Nathan Daniels-Heenan and Camden Vigona-Ross train with Pints regularly. Tiwi based players in town on business train with the Pints Club as well.

Pints are having a great season and currently sit top of the Div 1 ladder after defeating arch-rival and 2nd placed Banks on Sunday at Pints home base Marrara Cricket Ground. Thank you Pints and good luck in 2015. Pints play University on January 10 at the MCG.

Umpire Director’s Visit to Real Estate Central Oval
Mark Noonan, the NT Umpiring Development Manager travelled to Wurrumiyanga last Thursday accompanied by visiting AFL Umpire Nick Foot and AFLNT Media Manager David Kennedy to work with the Tiwi Island Football League Umpires and with the Toll Tiwi Bomber team at practice. Perhaps lessons learned from the visit resulted in a much more disciplined effort this week?

It was a terrific gesture by the AFLNT Umpiring Department – much appreciated

The Essendon Football Club Ron Evans Leadership Grant

Congratulations from the Board, Players, Members and supporters to our The Toll Tiwi Bombers Youth Girls Coach Karina Gray who was announced the winner of the 2014 Award at the Essendon Annual General Meeting last Monday.

In a tremendously sensitive and thoughtful  gesture Karina took a number 8 Toll Tiwi Bombers Youth

Girls Guernsey to present to the Evans family. Ron Evans played in the number 8 guernsey. The Toll Tiwi Youth Girls Guernsey features the Tiwi design sash designed by Tiwi College student mentor & Club member Dianne (Tic Tac) Moore – Go to our website and have a look at the Guernsey in the photos from the presentation which were provided by the Essendon Football Club and appear on both the Essendon FC and the Toll Tiwi Bombers websites.

The Annual award is offered nationally and aims to inspire and support leadership development of

Essendon players, athletes and staff of the Essendon Football Club and their affiliated clubs such as the Toll Tiwi Bombers Football Club. It honours the late Ron Evans, a past Premiership Bomber player, Essendon Premiership President and AFL Commission Chairman.

Round 11 Newsletter Monday 15th December 2014


When you lead by 10 points with all the momentum 13 minutes into the last quarter only to have a free kick well off the ball stop you in your tracks it doesn’t get much more frustrating.

A huge game in the context of the season but the result means we are going to have overcome the odds to play finals – where there’s life we are a chance! “Mathematically” we are alive-just!

There were still many positives with Mathias Liddy the standout in the absence of key forwards Ross Tungatalum, Roy Kantilla and Gerard Cunningham. Mathias kicked 6 of the total of 12 goals scored with 3 rippers from outside the 50 metre arc.

Mathias is a great example of a player gaining belief and confidence from being given a regular senior game and has performed at full-forward, centre half forward and centre half back this season.

First season recruit Josh Finch was great in the midfield as was Tiwi 2012 Premiership player Kristan Height in the midfield and defence. Island based first season defender Torin Petrie was motivated by the presence of his southern based parents and played a great game. He works at the Nguiu Garage.

Territory Thunder Tryout Invitation

Austin Wonaeamirri and Adam Tipungwuti received invitations along with 61 others to attend the first selection/training session this week with the Territory Thunder. Hopefully a couple of other players will earn invitations after Christmas.

 Player Wedding

The players, Board and Members wish 2012 Premiership Player Kristan Height the very best for his marriage when he marries on the 31st December.


Willie Rioli Junior has had leg soreness but should be back this week against the Tigers.

Roy Kantilla has shoulder soreness and is unlikely until January.

Gerard Cunningham has a foot problem and should be available after Christmas.

Premiership Captain Shane Tipuamantimirri has had the first stage of a knee reconstruction operation and will complete the procedure in 8 weeks. He had Lars surgery several years ago and that collapsed on him in Round 4. It is a 12 month recovery period so at best Tippa will return 2016.

Jobastin Priest has had a leg problem and unlikely before mid January.

Tim Bongetti has had shoulder surgery in Melbourne but may be available mid January.

Albert Tipungwuti has a calf injury and may be back after Christmas

SANFL Tryout
Willie Rioli Jnr will travel to Adelaide on January 11 to do 2 weeks of pre-season with SANFL club Glenelg. A Territory Thunder player last season Willie has declined an invitation to re-join them.

Although this is the second last newsletter for 2014 the Club would like to acknowledge the fantastic group of volunteers and support staff for both of the Toll Tiwi Bomber teams in the 2014/15 Season.

The Board wishes everyone and our loyal Members a wonderful Christmas and a Very Happy, Safe and Successful New Year in 2015

See you all at Marrara on Saturday


Round 10-2014/15 – A Big Week for our Family.

There is a popular adage/superstition that “good things happen in 3s” and the Toll Tiwi Bombers Club had an example last week. Joint Captains Austin Wonaeamirri and Ross Tungatalum and their partners did their bit for the Club’s future with the birth of sons.

Welcome to the Toll Tiwi Bomber family Austin Wonaeamirri Jnr and Jerricho Matthias Tungatalum – bring on 2030 and watch #39 and #7!!

The Toll Tiwi Bomber Premier League team did its bit to complete the hat-trick by regaining the Maurice Rioli Cup first played for in 2009. The Cup acknowledges and honours the role the late Maurice Rioli played in resurrecting the Waratah Football Club when he returned to Darwin from Perth in the early 90’s. The1982 Norm Smith Medallist (with Richmond) then moved into politics holding the seat currently held by our passionate sponsor and supporter Francis Xavier Kurrupuwu MLA for Arafura. After retirement from politics Maurice Rioli played a major role in creating the Toll Tiwi Bombers Football Club in 2005 and was present when the Club entered the mainland NTFL competition in 2007. The Maurice Rioli Grandstand at TIO Stadium is an AFLNT recognition of his contribution to the code within the NT and Nationally.

With special guests from the Toll Tiwi Bomber Match Day Sponsor attending the game – Remote Home Ownership Scheme – Head Coach Willie Rioli challenged the Bombers to rebound from a poor finish in the previous round and demanded accountability. Despite 10 changes including a late injury withdrawal the Toll Tiwi Bombers bounced out of the gates (a racing term!) to lead comfortably before letting Waratahs recover late in the quarter in what has become a bad habit this season.

Led by late inclusion Roy Farmer who kicked 4 of his eventual 5 goals in the 2nd quarter the Toll Tiwis regained control and established a critical 18 point margin at the half time break.

To the opposition’s credit they never gave up as the Toll Tiwi Bombers slowly increased their lead to finish 28 point winners and remain in the finals hunt in what appears to be an even competition.


Toll Tiwi Bombers           6-7          12-7       17-12     21-16     (142)

Injured Captain-Update

Co-Captain and 2012 Premiership Captain Shane Tipuamantimirri had a preliminary knee operation in Adelaide last week and has returned home. He will have a second operation in January. Really missing his on-field leadership and on-ground passion so hopefully all other players step up and share the workload previously done by “Tippa”.

Game Day 141206

Round 9 Saturday 29th November 2014

The highs and lows of sport? The Toll Tiwi Bombers followed their great win on the island with an excellent first half against the Darwin Buffaloes only to be over-run in the second half.

Full credit to the Buffaloes who played an excellent brand of hardworking team football.

It is easy to blame fitness but we are 8 rounds into the season. Attitude is the more likely problem causing inconsistency and with that possibly a lack of competitive hunger apparent 2 seasons ago?

It was great to see 3 time Club leading goalkicker Gerard (Muna) Cunningham get back amongst the goals with 4 and late replacement and former Best & Fairest Rupert Pupangamirri back to his vigorous best as he regains confidence.

The Toll Tiwi Bombers best players showed why they are so highly rated in their southern leagues. Josh Finch who was close to Best on Ground has represented Victoria Country and has won multiple league Best & Fairest Medals. Veteran Paul Scanlon is amazing with his guile and cleverness. Paul won the Chaney Medal for the Grand Final Best Player on Ground in our 2012 Premiership win.

Injured CaptainDisappointing to report that the knee injury current Co-Captain and 2012

Premiership Captain Shane Tipuamantimirri suffered in Round 4 against Nightcliff requires a major reconstruction operation. It is scheduled tomorrow in Adelaide and initial diagnosis suggests a 12 month recovery for our 33 year old legend. Tippa is sitting on 147 career NTFL games. He played in a Waratah NTFL Premiership before playing SANFL football and then in a WAFL Premiership with South Fremantle. Our thoughts are with a very disappointed Tippa and his family.
