The team members have had little opportunity for- pr'actice. Several are newcomers to Darwin, and players and supporters alike are confident that. With steady practice and the return of "Beau" Morton, Jim Pas coe and other `key players, the side will settle down into a very forniid able combination. The keenness and enthusiasm of the lads, themselves also augers well for marked' and early improvement.
