NT Thunder’s Matthew Green will travel to Queensland to play for the Allies against Vic Metro this Saturday in Round 2 of the NAB AFL Under 18 National Championships.
NT Thunder Academy coach, Jimmy Driscoll said Green performed well in the first Allies game against Vic Country last weekend.
“Matty plays as a utility and is very versatile and easy to coach.
“In the first game, he worked hard defensively and got into some good positions. This week his focus will be on attacking the ball and he will play a more offensive role,” he said.
Driscoll will once again be an assistant coach for the Allies for the game at Fankhauser Reserve.

Gallio on Green: “Greeny played across halfback and then we played him as an inside mid and he also played outside on a wing. His poise and ability to use the ball was really impressive and that’s what really attracted the AFL clubs and the other selectors of the Allies to him.”
