    End of the day Rules are Rules, If they have to start at the bottom then so be it.

    They have set up well for this year and judging by their signings listed on their social media then I'm thinking they are aiming for ZPL at the minimum.

    Given their socials they probably have a target on their shoulders. Smells a little egotistic, but if they back it up on the field then good luck to them.

    Had a look at the ladder tor the first time this season.

    Obviously with all the washouts there is still a lot to happen. I just thought it was a nice coincidence that Raymond Terrace are top in first grade and bottom in second grade whilst Bellbird is the complete opposite.

    Cardiff v Raymond terrace
    Firsts grade 3-2 Raymond Terrace
    Reserves 2-1 cardiff

    Disappointing not to get something out of first grade, conceding 2 goals in 3 minutes right on half time was the killer.

    Thanks to Raymond Terrace for hosting, Cardiff moving their home game there to get the game on. Apart from Raymond Terrace and Bellbird, all other zl3 teams struggling to play home games.

    Azzurri v Cardiff

    Res: 4-0
    1sts: 4-1

    Results are pretty flattering, Cardiff put up a good fight in both grades, on top at the end of First Grade. Big penalty save at the end of the first half in Reserve Grade as well.

    Well done to Azzurri, they deserved their wins. We weren't enthusiastic enough in first grade in the first half, Azzurri were much more up for the contest and went in at half time 3-0 up. We played some good football in the second half and should have pegged a couple more goals back, but in reality the game was lost in the first half.

    Reserve grade had plenty of opportunities to get back in the game at 1-0 down. But after butchering those opportunities, Azzurri put the foot down and ran away with the game.

    No dramas about a forfeit but an hour before reserve grade Kick-off is ridiculous. We had a player travel 3 and a half hours down the coast just to play, to be told 5 minutes after arriving that the game was off was tough on him. Luckily he got a run of the bench in first grade.

    Kurri v Cardiff
    Firsts 2-1 Kurri
    Reserves 2-0 cardiff

    Club referees on hand as no official referees present.

    First grade was a rough result. Kurri dominated first half and scored a penalty right on half time.
    Cardiff better team in the second half, equalised with a good goal then denied a penalty.
    Kurri awarded a second very soft penalty 10 minutes to go which they converted.

    Very frustrating.........

    Reserves, Scoreline could have been much more if Cardiff converted countless opportunities

    It's nearly a case of trying to be so dominant in games with club officials that their performances are insignificant. Kurri can be a tribal sort of place, hard to get calls at the best of times.

    Club referee had 2 decent games, I think the linesman made the call for a penalty.

    It's over now, we move on

    Azzurri v Croatia
    1sts 1-0
    Res 1-2

    Couple red cards in Reserve Grade and a very tight affair. Our first loss of the season so fair play to Croatia.

    First Grade had half the squad out and come away with a 1-0 win. One of the most intense games Iíve seen

    Massive results in both grades yesterday.

    I guess it makes the 3rd game between these teams as vital for minor premiership. Sounds like Azzurri held off an intense barrage of pressure. 2 wins over Newcastle in a season was probably unthinkable to them.

    Kurri have skipped into 3rd, some big weeks ahead could shape the finals positions clearer.

    Was a truly intense match to watch. Early goal to the Crabs and then withstood an absolute barrage of attack from Croatia. Some may not like the bus being parked but sometimes you need to play to your strengths, J McGuinness having a rare day without a goal. Was shackled pretty well. Great atmosphere

    I know it's been portrayed as such on socials, however, was it really a barrage? Not doubting Croatia definitely had the lion's share of possession, yet failed to produce many meaningful shots on target. They forced a miraculous save from a ripper of a long ranger in the first half, then had a couple dangerous looking shots miss the target in the second half. Apart from that it was just poor crosses and poor set pieces finding the Azzurri gloveman. Perhaps if their players were more focused on the task at hand as opposed to interacting with the Azzurri supporters, that came in droves after their ZPL game at Hexham was postponed, they possibly would have won the game.

    Also despite Croatia controlling the game, Azzurri still probably had better chances to score more goals on the counter attack. One open goal late in the second half that was missed would have sealed it at 2-0, and there were other opportunities earlier in the game where they could have extended their lead, however they either overplayed it or Croatia scrambled well. Davey Hecimovic at the back was huge for Croatia. Would imagine though that with 6 first graders missing, Azzurri would be pretty confident moving forwards.
