COLLINGWOOD'S Levi Greenwood and Tyson Goldsack were allegedly involved in a physical altercation with ex-AFL player Nathan Djerrkura at a remote Northern Territory pub on Saturday night.

Greenwood, 29, and Goldsack, 31, were in the NT for the White Ribbon Football Competition and Family Day earlier that day at Hindle Oval in Nhulunbuy, about 1000km east of Darwin.

A third man was with the two Magpies during the incident at the Walkabout Tavern in Nhulunbuy.

FULL FIXTURE Every round, every game understands Greenwood, Goldsack and the third man left the pub immediately afterwards and no one was seriously hurt.

An NT Police spokesman confirmed a man was arrested at the venue on Saturday night.

"He has since been released and issued an infringement for disorderly behaviour," the statement read.

"Police have not received a complaint and are therefore not investigating an assault."

WHO MAKES FINALS? Do the 2019 Ladder Predictor

A Collingwood spokesman told that club officials would speak to Greenwood and Goldsack when they returned to Melbourne.

It is believed Djerrkura engaged in conversation with the Magpies pair and the incident happened shortly after.

Djerrkura, 30, played 25 games for Geelong and the Western Bulldogs between 2007 and 2012.

He retired from the Bulldogs with a season still to run on his contract and returned to the NT, where he lives in the Gove Peninsula, about 30km south of Nhulunbuy.

Djerrkura's late father, Gatjil, was a former chairman of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission.

Greenwood and Goldsack each signed new one-year deals in October to extend their AFL careers into 2019.
