North Launceston gun and North Melbourne Next Generation Academy player Tarryn Thomas, who was named in the bests for the Allies last week, had eight tackles and 12 touches in a solid display.
Burnie’s Thomas Mundy tasted division 1 under-18s football for the first time in what was South Australia's first for the carnival after losing to Western Australia by one point in extra time last week.
