    a cardboard cut out would do the same or better,
    if they had massive amounts of $$$$$ to spend on players.

    Edgy old boys day this weekend, with a bumper crowd expected.

    Just checking results recently, apart from the close game in round 1 with Charlestown, they seem to be getting blown off the park recently?

    What is going on there? Has Mr Law struggled in the second season?

    MAGIC Vs VALO off in first grade... Phoenix organised a team bonding Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb last weekend and will not be able to fill a squad due to the stay at home orders.

    What's the real reason they are not playing?

    Weston and Valo both have 4 first grade players who live on the central coast so northern have allowed them to postpone their games because of Covid. Do you agree with this or not ?
    I think games should be played before we run out of time.
    Clubs all have a 20 man pps roster so both clubs have 16 players available. Promote some reserve grade players and get the games played.
    Other clubs continue to play when they have 2 or 3 players ruled out due to Covid

    I think you will find somewhere in the rules the magic number is 4 out. Clearly both clubs at a disadvantage through no fault of their own so correct decision by NNSWF.

    Wrong decision in Valo case, they have nothing to play for, they won't get relegated and they can't make finals, give some fringe players a crack,like I said nothing to lose. I also remember posting a couple of weeks ago that all games should be played ASAP in case COVID comes back. Sunday, Wednesday,Sunday for 2 weeks would get a few games put away, thats what we are going to have to do to catch up COVID called out games anyway !!

    What happens if the lockdown gets extended again ???. At the moment only two clubs Weston (bugger all) and Valentine (no) chance of making finals are creating problems for the others vying for those honours. Also, isn’t this a NNSW football comp. would NSW football do the same if the situations were reversed.

    Good on Edgeworth for pushing ahead with games, that’s why they are a respected club.

    100%, doesnít look like itís going to end anytime soon. Every team has a 20 man squad so let the games play.

    Couldnít agree more. If you canít trust bloke 12-20 in the squad why have them. I tip my hat to Edgy for just getting on with it

    Decent day out at edgy for old boys day.

    Charlestown offered a fair bit.

    Bridgy got some good squad depth. Players coming off the bench that would start elsewhere

    Law time up at Charlestown?

    With only 4 weeks of the competition left and most clubs already having 6 games to play, plus Magic and Olympic having ffa cup fixtures , surely it's time for northern to show some leadership and tell clubs that first grade matches need to be played.
    This lockdown could be in place until the end of the month or longer, are they going to continue to allow Weston and Valo to postpone matches because they have 3 or 4 players out.
    Postpone the 18's matches and push players up before it becomes too late with a log jam of games.
    Back to you Northern

    Charlie unlucky not to get something out of that game. Some poor finishing and the woodwork costing them.

    Def had the better chances than Edgy.

    2 edgy cbs were immense. Brockie had a poor day in front or goal.

    I dont think the coach is Azzuris problem, but results are what matters I guess.

    And letís be real these blokes that are missing wonít be training as much or at an intensity they would need to be to play first grade, so when they do become available are they going straight back into the starting lineup I would think in most cases they are not. Play the games and promote your reserve grade players. This may just be a lesson to clubs to make sure to focus on your lower grades so you can promote from within!!
