    will update when some other games are eventually played.

    Buds called off Sat games v Olympic in a hurry. lol.

    Yes all grass games will be easily off. Azzurri at LCarr so wont play that
    15s was 1 all
    16s was Maitland 3-2. 1 nil looks better for a clean sheet tho. Lol

    Going to be a long wet week. Again.

    My good mate at Jaffas has relocated their games against last placed Cooks Hill to sandy Stockton. Why didnít he do this a couple of weeks ago when they were supposed to host Magic 🤔😉

    There isnít another TD in town who plays the game as well your good mate at Jaffas. From top to bottom, from recruitment to organisation to getting the games played you want to at the right times, heís light years ahead of the rest. Love him or hate him youíve got to respect him.

    Rosebuds youth werenít set to play until Sunday. We know itís going to rain but to call it on Friday after less than torrential fall speaks to perhaps a different agenda.

    I love the Buds but the noises from the parents this season suggests things are worse than they have been in many years. Letís hope things change soon.

    No games will get on. Maybe let families start the school hols earlier. Why waste everyoneís time. Plus the grounds prob still rooted from the Maitland game that lasted 30 min and chewed it up

    Agree. Northern needed to show leadership and call whole round off like they did in round 1. Issue now is that some clubs are willing to get games on and willing to rent fields at LMRFF or move to sand based games where others are happy to take the 1 point. Throw in fact that North Coast will never get washed out causes issues as well.

    You simply can't run a points based ladder where some teams are able to play and some aren't.

    And already it seems that some clubs have moved to sand based grounds based on the opposition

    For what itís worth I think all games should be made up. Most teams have caught up by now surely

    How can you have a comp which allows some to rent a game at Speers Point to get the points and then have other clubs in the hands of the host who might not fancy playing? Itís a joke.

    If one plays at Speers Point on a wet weekend, all play at Speers Point. Start games early, play games late, use the school holidays to catch up. Is it that hard seriously?

    Stocko FB saying they have their first wash out in two years this weekend, so maybe the sandy ground route isnít the way to go either.

    Come on Northern - step in and do your job. The whole point of Speers Point is for weekends like this surely

    Couldn’t agree more with this. Clubs shouldn’t be able to individually book speers for competition games. If one clubs gets one it should be an expectation that all should be booked into the facility. They won’t all get on the same weekend but some teams are having to play games Saturday and Sunday the same weekend to catch up. I mean how does that work for a balanced comp?? Going to be a lot of annoyed people with 1 point washouts this weekend!

    The problem is now other than north coast using it and JDL it’s also the home ground for the boys and girls jets teams.

    When some clubs have low single digit points all season, a 0-0 draw and not having to go through the inevitable is a good result.

    For sure, but that shouldnít stop a few 8 oíclock am and pm school holidays kick offs in the youth comp. Sure itís tough to organise but isnít that what Northern are there for? They have people whoís job it is to organise the comp and and manage the venue. Surely they can have a chat? If we are saying it on here Iím hopeful someone is saying it within Northern.

    Carefully worded post however. Only advised games for Saturday are called off.

    Thatís very interesting. I hope some of the club eyeballs on here are taking note that you can get it done if you want to.

    If Stocko arenít on today for their own teams why would they let another club play tomorrow. Makes little sense

    Have Stockton been offered some money for the use of their ground on Sunday? I have no idea but I wonder???

    Northern won't provide use of synthetic as will lose income from teams hire costs to train there. If Northern were fair dinkum about using the venue for catch up games, they may have cancelled their revenue generating Women's State Cup and Community State Youth Championships that are using the synthetic fields all next weekend and during holidays or at least had it at end of year.

    Northern however took easy way out and made call to not replay wash out games for 18 years and under.
