Kangaroos adopt ‘united’ stance after staff members quit

A group of North Melbourne AFL players leave the field during a match against Fremantle.

North Melbourne is putting up a “united” front, despite confirming its list manager quit his role this week because he did not feel supported.

Key points:

  • Glenn Luff was one of three staff members to quit the Kangaroos
  • Kangaroos CEO Ben Amarfio says Luff’s resignation is a “shock”
  • David Noble says he is confident the club can turn its fortunes around on the field

Glenn Luff resigned on Tuesday, while long-time national recruiting manager Mark Finnigan and recruiting officer Ben Birthisel have also left the club, which is languishing in second-last place on the ladder with one win from 10 matches.

The exodus of the three recruiters comes on the eve of the mid-season draft.

Kangaroos chief executive Ben Amarfio said Luff had cited a lack of support as being behind his decision to depart from the club.

“I think there’s a number of reasons why Glenn left and that’s one of the many reasons,” Amarfio told a media conference at Arden Street on Thursday.
