All eyes in the NTFL are now on finals positions and we will be streaming every game with plenty of thrilling matches to come.
The NT News and KommunityTV have been your one-stop shop for Men’s Premier League action all season, bringing you every game.
And in a first for the 2022-23 season we’ve also brought you a match from the ever-exciting Women’s Premier League each week.
Check out which games you cannot miss as the NTFL returns on Saturday.
Up first we’ve got the women’s fixture between top three rivals St Mary’s and Waratah at TIO Stadium from 12.30pm.
The sides are currently locked on 40 competition points each with the winners most likely to finish the season in second and potentially securing the finals double chance.
Then it’s over to Cazalys Arena where the men of Palmerston will host a Tiwi Bombers side on the hunt for a win from 1.45pm.
Palmerston have fielded younger sides in recent weeks as they build towards next season, but they come up against a Tiwi side eager to get their second victory of the year.
Back at TIO Stadium from 4.30pm we have the men’s match between St Mary’s and Waratah, who like their women’s counterparts also sit in second and third.
St Mary’s will be after a taste of revenge following their heavy defeat to Tahs in Round 1 of the season, and with finals now on the mind of both sides a statement is important.
Over at DXC Arena from 6.30pm PINT will play their final match of their first 2022-23 regular season against the Nightcliff Tigers.
If PINT win this there’s a slim chance they could still break into the finals mix, but the Tigers have been the form side in the competition over the past few weeks.
And finally from 7pm at TIO Stadium we have the Darwin Buffaloes up against Wanderers who found their kicking boots in Round 16.
For the Buffaloes this is an important match to prove they’re still a chance come finals time, but the Muk Muks have shown a taste of their talent in recent weeks.
ROUND 16 REPLAYS
First up is the Districts women haven’t quite enjoyed the season they might have liked, but there are plenty of bright spots in their young list.
Then it’s over to the men’s competition where bottom sides Tiwi Bombers and Wanderers go head-to-head at Gardens Oval from 2pm.
Neither side have had the season they would have wanted, but both teams will fancy their chances of grabbing a win late in the season.
Back at Norbuilt Oval from 4pm the men’s fixture between Southern Districts and PINT is set to take place.
PINT know they need the win here to put themselves in position to steal a finals berth, but top-of-the-table Districts will be gunning to impress in their last home appearance of the year.
Then it’s the women’s match between a strong and in-form St Mary’s and Palmerston Magpies at TIO Stadium from 5pm.
Over at Nightcliff Oval from 6.30pm we have what is shaping up to be the match of the round between the Nightcliff Tigers and Darwin Buffaloes.
Both sides currently occupy a finals position, but if either are to drop this match they could instead find themselves bundled out before the end of the season.
And finally at TIO Stadium the Palmerston Magpies will take on reigning premiers St Mary’s from 7pm.
Palmerston’s hopes for their season have dropped significantly since November, however they still have talent across the park to put on a show.
But St Mary’s are in better form and with the need to protect their double chance will be out for a percentage boosting win.
ROUND 15 REPLAYS
Up first is the women’s match between the past two women’s premiership winners, Darwin Buffettes and PINT, at TIO Stadium from 12.30pm.
PINT have been the form side in the women’s comp all year, but the Buffettes have proven a force to be reckoned with since the Christmas break.
From 2.30pm it’s the first men’s match between the Tiwi Bombers and Southern Districts.
It’s the battle of the top side vs the bottom side, and after both suffered separate disappointments last round they’ll each be after some sort of redemption.
Then at 5pm we have the potential match of the round between fourth-placed Darwin Buffaloes and finals hopefuls PINT.
Buffaloes are sitting pretty in the top four on the back of a strong year so far, but in order to stay safe they need to take their wins where they can.
But the Greenants won’t let their chances of making finals disappear entirely and will be throwing everything at this match to keep their hopes alive.
The final match on Saturday between St Mary’s and Nightcliff could also have a big bearing on the league with the two in-form sides facing off at 7.30pm.
The Tigers clawed their way back into the finals positions after a big win over top side Southern Districts, and intend to stay there.
And finally on Sunday we have the Foundation Cup match between Wanderers and Waratah at Tracy Village Oval from 4pm.
Wanderers are now out of real finals contention, but can still play a key role in disrupting their rivals, while second placed Tahs will want to show why they’re so highly rated.
ROUND 14 REPLAYS
Our weekend of streaming fixtures kicks off with our women’s match between Waratah and the Tiwi Bombers at Gardens Oval from 12.30pm.
Waratah will be hoping to bounce back following a hefty Round 12 loss to top side PINT, but they face strong competition in a well-rested Tiwi outfit.
The Tiwi men also return to the field for their first match of the year in the all-important Maurice Rioli Cup match against Waratah at Gardens Oval from 12.30pm.
The match played in memory of its namesake is hugely important to both clubs, and though Waratah come in as overwhelming favourites expect plenty of passion from the Bombers.
Then we head over to Nightcliff Oval where a Nightcliff Tigers side growing in confidence take on top side Southern Districts at 4pm.
This will be a real tester for the Tigers who despite their home advantage aren’t a side to pile on the points, while that’s exactly what the Crocs can do if they catch you napping.
Over at TIO Stadium from 5pm we’ve got an interesting battle between Wanderers and PINT.
Both sides sit on equal points on the NTFL table just outside the finals berths, and a loss here could spell the end of either side’s season.
Finally it’s over to Cazalys Arena in what will be an incredibly important 7pm fixture for both host side Palmerston and their foes Darwin Buffaloes.
For Palmerston it’s a chance to overturn their downward trend which now sees them sitting outside of the finals positions.
And for Buffaloes it’s an opportunity to cement their spot in the top four and further separate themselves from the chasing pack.
ROUND 13 REPLAYS
It might have only been two weeks, but it has been a fortnight that has felt like forever.
After a good festive break, and maybe a few too many Christmas hams, the NTFL season kicks back into high gear this weekend.
A winless Wanderers women’s side had one wish for Christmas, and while he might be off the clock, they’re expecting Santa to deliver it this weekend.
Wanderers will be determined to score their first win of the NTFL season as they kick off our weekend’s streaming fixtures against the fourth-placed Nightcliff Tigers at 2.30pm, Saturday.
Wanderers will be hungry to get back into action after an extended festive season break, while Nightcliff enjoyed a 76-7 smashing of Palmerston in the last week of December.
The match of the round will follow the women’s encounter with Darwin Buffaloes and St Mary’s kicking off at TIO Stadium at 4.30pm.
It is a battle of third and fourth on the ladder, with both sides determined to start a winning run over the back half of the season.
A win for the Buffs will shorten the gap between themselves and Saints to one game, and turn the tables on their previous meeting this season when the Saints ran away with victory in a goalfest.
Second-placed Waratah will be determined not to start the new year complacent as they come up against a hungry PINT from 6pm, Saturday.
PINT pushed Waratah to the limit across three quarters the last time the two sides faced off in Round 9, but have been cursed by their own inconsistency on the field, having won only one of their past six games.
In another exciting tussle, Nightcliff and Wanderers will go toe-to-toe with a chance to break free of a mid-table logjam at 7pm.
Both sides come out of the Christmas break with middling 4-6 records.
While Wanderers were too strong for the Tigers in their earlier clash this season, the Nightcliff side will take plenty of confidence out of the fact they won the final quarter 27-14.
In the final live stream clash of Round 13, NTFL frontrunners Southern Districts will come up against Palmerston Magpies at 7pm.
The Crocs have broken free of the pack after their big win over Waratah on the final weekend of 2022.
Palmerston were rocked after they had competition points taken off them for a breach of AFL NT fly-in rules before Christmas, but will be determined to make up for lost points early in the new year.
ROUND 12 REPLAYS
Starting off our livestream action in Round 12 is our women’s match between the Tiwi Bombers and the Darwin Buffettes from 12.30pm at TIO Stadium.
In Round 3, the reigning premiers smashed the Bombers 11.17 (83) to 2.1 (13), but a lot has changed since then and the two sides only find themselves separated by four points heading into the match.
At 2.30pm is the men’s fixture between Tiwi and Darwin, and once again it’s an important match for both sides.
The Bombers have shown signs of improvement in recent weeks, but the Buffaloes will want to cement their spot in the top four heading into the break.
Then it’s over to Gardens Oval for the top of the table clash between Waratah and Southern Districts from 4pm.
It’s the match everyone has been waiting for since the two emerged from the pack as strong favourites for the minor premiership.
And this match-up could very well decide who goes to top at the end of the season.
Back over at TIO Stadium we have what promises to be an exciting encounter between the Nightcliff Tigers and Palmerston Magpies from 5pm.
Both sides are in need of a bounce back victory after sharp dips in form, and against each other they have a chance to seize the win.
And finally at 7.30pm we have the last NTFL game of 2022 between reigning premiers St Mary’s and the competition’s newest side PINT.
PINT earned their first ever win in surprising fashion in this match-up, but it’s Saints who have carried the better form in recent weeks and will be out for revenge.
ROUND 11 REPLAYS
Getting us started in Round 11 is an exciting match-up between PINT and Tiwi Bombers at DXC Arena from 3pm, Saturday.
Last time these two sides met Tiwi ended their 988 day winless streak on Bathurst Island, but now they meet at PINT’s home, where they’re a force to be reckoned with.
Then it’s over to Norbuilt Oval for what is shaping up to be the match of the round between host side Southern Districts and reigning premiers St Mary’s from 4pm.
Districts have been one of the form sides of the year and sit second as a result, but after winning five matches in a row St Mary’s are now nipping at the Crocs heels.
Both sides will be giving it their all, as a win here further cements their place in the upper echelons of the NTFL table.
From 5pm we head back to TIO Stadium for our women’s match of the week where we will see Palmerston Magpies take on Wanderers.
The Magpies in particular should be well up for this match as they eye a potential finals spot, while the Muk Muks will be looking for their first win of the season.
Over at Gardens Oval from 6pm, Waratah will do battle with a Nightcliff Tigers side who need to bounce back after four losses on the trot.
League leaders Waratah are a tough prospect for any side, particularly at home, but Nightcliff, despite recent result, still have the players to get the job done.
And finally back at TIO Stadium at 7pm we have Palmerston men up against Wanderers.
Neither side enjoyed the result they might have liked in Round 10, and this week both sides will be looking to make amends in what should be a thrilling match-up.
ROUND 10 REPLAYS
Starting the action in Round 10 at TIO Stadium is the in-form St Mary’s up against bottom side Tiwi Bombers from 2pm.
The match was originally supposed to be played at Wurrumiyanga Oval but was moved to TIO Stadium at the request of the Bombers.
But expect no less passion between the two sides with St Mary’s hoping to make it five premier league wins in a row.
Then it’s over to Tracy Village Oval for what promises to be an exciting match-up between Wanderers and Southern Districts from 4pm.
Districts have been the better team this year winning the encounter last time, but the Muk Muks came close due to Steven Motlop’s third-quarter masterclass.
Back at TIO Stadium from 4.30pm Darwin Buffaloes will take on league leaders Waratah.
Both sides have plenty of talent in their ranks and have been in good form so far in the 2022-23 season, but the Buffaloes are the side more in need of a win after their Round 9 loss.
It’s then time for our women’s match between the Darwin Buffettes and the Tahs women to take over from 7pm.
The women’s reigning premiers haven’t quite managed the results they would have wanted in recent weeks, and against the second-placed Tahs know they have a hard task ahead.
At the same time over the road at DXC Arena we have the Palmerston Magpies up against a formidable PINT side.
It will be a chance for both sides to finally settle the score after they played to washed-out draw way back in Round 2.
ROUND 9 REPLAYS
Starting this week’s action is the 4pm match at Norbuilt Oval between Southern Districts and Palmerston Magpies.
The Crocs are flying at the top of the table, but Eddie Betts returning to Palmerston is sure to add some firepower to their side.
After that from 4.30pm over at DXC Arena we have our women’s match and it’s bound to be a cracker between top two sides Waratah and PINT.
Both sides have gone undefeated so far in the 2022-23 season, but in their first meeting of the year one side will have to lose that accolade.
At the same time at TIO Stadium we will see a resurgent St Mary’s take on a Darwin Buffaloes who have by this stage proved they’re more than a final’s contender.
Then from 6.30pm at DXC Arena the Tahs men face a challenge taking on PINT, who have yet to drop a game at their home ground.
Waratah have been one of the form sides of the year, but PINT have proved time and again they’re a side who can match it with anyone.
Then finally back at TIO Stadium from 7pm we have the Nightcliff Tigers up against Wanderers, in what is an important game for both sides.
Nightcliff, who have enjoyed so much success in recent years, have lost their past three matches, while Wanderers only just returned to the winner’s list in Round 8.
ROUND 8 REPLAYS
Kicking off the round is the match we’ve all been waiting for with one of the greatest players of all time Gary Ablett Jr running out for the Palmerston Magpies against St Mary’s.
Billed as one of the biggest NTFL regular season matches in some time, the Magpies have introduced star after star this year, and have unleashed their biggest name against the reigning premiers.
The 7pm Friday face-off is one which will hold plenty of meaning for both sides with Palmerston eyeing a return to the top of the table, while Saints could climb into the top four should they win.
Then on Saturday from 12.30pm we have the PINT women take on Southern Districts at TIO Stadium
There’s plenty to play for in this match with PINT having the chance to surge to the top of the table, while Districts are in need of a win to keep their chances alive.
At 4.30pm, it will be the men’s turn and in a twist from recent seasons the Darwin Buffaloes come in as the better placed side against Nightcliff Tigers.
Nightcliff crumbled to their third defeat of the season with their inability to kick straight, but coming to TIO Stadium for their very first time this year may change matters.
Being played at the same time from Tracy Village Oval is an interesting tussle between bottom sides Wanderers and Tiwi Bombers.
Both sides have plenty of potential, but potential means nothing without results and a result is what both will be battling for.
And finally back at TIO Stadium from 7pm is the in-form Southern Districts against the league’s newest side PINT.
The Crocs will want to continue their hot streak, but will know not to take the Greenants lightly as the latter team have proven themselves enough this season.
ROUND 7 REPLAYS
Up first in Round 7 is our second trip to Wurrumiyanga Oval where the Tiwi Bombers will host a strong Southern Districts outfit from 1.30pm.
The match presents an interesting match-up with the Bombers keen to keep their home record clean, while the Crocs have yet to win away from home.
Then we have our women’s match of the round between an in-form PINT, with an outstanding percentage of 1155, and the reigning premiers Darwin Buffettes at 2.30pm.
They will shortly following by the men’s match between the same clubs from 4.30pm.

At 6.30pm we head over to Nightcliff Oval where St Mary’s face-off against home side Nightcliff Tigers in what promises to be a belter.
This has been the biggest match-up of recent years and while neither side is up the top of the table at the moment, there will still be plenty of feeling in this one.
And finally from 7pm we go back to TIO Stadium for the round closer between Waratah and Wanderers.
These two teams sit at opposite ends of the table, but still have plenty to prove on the field, particularly Wanderers who won’t want to fall further behind on the table.
