Not good to start with an apology but the newsletter has been delayed due to attempts to get confirmation around the Youth Girls Match time.


The Toll Tiwi Bombers team recorded a critical win from an overall season perspective with its 9 point win over Waratahs on Saturday at TIO. Narrow losses to the same opponents last year were critical in the overall season result so to win after losing momentum after half time was a great result.


Toll Tiwi Bomber Coach Willie Rioli focussed on the positives after his side sacrificed a 42 point lead at halftime to actually trail late in the match.

Rioli said “We had many chances in the first half to put the game out of reach of Tahs with 20-8 scoring shots and that left the door ajar when many Toll Tiwi players became hesitant and went away from the game plan”

With 11 changes maintaining a season trend the Toll Tiwi Bombers showed great character to dominate the first 20 minutes of the first quarter led up forward by Matthias Liddy who finished the game with 2-5 and a mosquito fleet of runners who dominated at ground level.

The Toll Tiwi Bomber backline was brilliant led by Nick McElwee and Billy Barden on the last line of defence but given great support by Michael Dunn, Dion Munkara and Shane Tipuamantimirri.

Ross Tungatalum was brilliant early and then stepped up to become the match winner with the last 2 goals, one a likely goal of the year candidate after he gained possession deep in defence, took on and beat 3 tacklers to finish with a brilliant goal regaining the lead for the Toll Tiwi Bombers. Ross crumbed a ball moments later to kick the match sealing goal much to the excitement of the pro Toll Tiwi Bomber crowd.

The Toll Tiwi Bomber Club was last week thrilled to announce an alliance with the Remote Home Ownership Program which was launched at Wurrumiyanga on Monday and Milikapiti on Tuesday. The possibility of island home ownership is a consequence of the signing of the Federal Government 99 Year Lease Agreements for some parts of the Tiwi Islands. Although more technical than can be outlined here the project provides Tiwi Islanders with the opportunity to purchase their homes with loan repayments matching current house rentals.

Appreciation to the players who helped at each venue-appreciated by Remote Housing Ownership
