    COMMUNITY TRADITION: Justin Crawley marks the djinabi – possum skinned ball - in front of Tom McDonagh.

    DESPITE some rain, thunder and lightning the third annual Marngrook match on Sunday afternoon was the biggest one yet.

    The event organised by Bright P12 College, in association with Dhudhuroa Waywurru Nations Aboriginal Corporation, Thathangathay Foundation and Kindred Spirits Foundation was this year held in conjunction with the first Alpine Community Fair.

    More than 80 past and present Bright P12 College students, staff and community members, along with members of the Wadeye community and local Dhudhuroa people took part in the game between the two language groups, the Dhudhuroa Blacks.

    The Dhudhuroa Blacks were captained by former Essendon player Nathan Lovett-Murray while the Murrinh-patha reds were captained by Chris Ngulkur.
