Short-handed Shinglebacks face SA
Saturday, 9th June, 2012
The Shinglebacks tackle a South Australian representative team tomorrow at the Jube in Masters AFL, with the big clash set down for 12.30pm start.
South Australia will be bringing a selection of players from the 15 teams from across the State and the locals are hoping they are not too slick.
The Shinglebacks have been rocked with unavailability with several dads required in Mildura to cheer on their kids at footy and basketball.
Long road to the top

Ian Callinan’s football story is out of place in the modern AFL landscape.
It began the same way as many other AFL players; a promising junior career which led on to selection as part of the under 18 All-Australian team in 2000.
The next part of the script was for him to be picked up by an AFL club in the 2000 draft, but that never happened.
Crows a hit with kids
Wednesday, 6th June, 2012
Adelaide Crows players, Taylor Walker, Ian Callinan and Bernie Vince were a hit with the locals after yesterday taking part in school visits, a football night and a coaching clinic.
The players ventured to the Morgan Street School and Taylor Walker’s old school, Broken Hill North Public School, to meet some lucky school students.
Then Jubilee Oval was last night transformed into a sea of red, yellow and blue as more than 200 local kids were treated to the Adelaide Crows’ coaching clinic.
Kids keen on Crows

AFL players, Taylor Walker, Bernie Vince and Ian Callinan will today touch down in Broken Hill for a day with the community at school visits, sponsorship appearances, a coaching clinic and a dinner to support junior football.
Tickets are still available for tonight’s Adelaide Crows Night at the North Football Club which will feature a Q and A session with the players and a sports memorabilia auction.
The items up for grabs at the auction include a signed Crows guernsey, signed footballs, football boots, Crows caps and a Crows kids’ pack.
All proceeds from the night, including the auction, will be put back into junior football in Broken Hill.
Northerners too quick out of the blocks
Monday, 4th June, 2012
A strong second half showing from Broken Hill allowed them to salvage a respectable loss from Saturday’s Miner’s Cup clash at AAMI Stadium.
At half time Broken Hill were 41 points behind and the signs were worrying, but they outscored Roxby Downs in the second half en route to a 9.10 (64) to 15.10 (100) defeat.
Joel Harman looked unstoppable at full forward for the Far North and relished the big stage, kicking seven goals.
The Far North Football League dominated the contest for much of the first quarter, with the game played almost exclusively in their forward half.
