The Otago Riot have announced their squad for the 2017 AFL New Zealand NPC which will be held in Auckland December 9th and 10th.
New Zealand Senior representative Josh Mackie highlights the 2017 Riot squad. The Northern Suns midfielder was the youngest squad member in the New Zealand 2017 International Cup squad and will provide the Otago Riot with both pace and stamina. Josh will be playing in the midfield for Otago alongside fellow Suns squad members Will Dickinson and Heta Scarf-Matthews.
Central Giants midfielder Tristan Burnett will make an impact in the contest while new star recruit James McKenzie will be favourite to take home the Golden Boot award for most goals kicked over the weekend.
