    Can’t even blame it being trashed today for calling it off

    we've had 10 millimetres of rain int he hour leading up to what would have been kick off

    maybe the refs knew something we didn't

    still seems a little too hasty to call tomorrow off

    I think the answer to the forums topic is a resounding yes

    Edit: back in the last century games were never called off once they had started and we would get excited about playing in the mud

    Both games that were called off were in 1st grade and both at around the 30 minute mark.
    Jaffas Azzurri 1 - 1
    Adamstown Maitland 0 - 2
    Will these games be re started from the 30th minute with scores as they are , or will both games start again at 0 - 0 ?

    Just got out of a hit shower after 80min in pissing rain at no.6. Got called with a few min to go because the goal mouths were under water. No.4 completely under water. Not surprised Athtrack was called, there's been rain here in Cooks Hill consistently since this morning. Weird weather, our ref was surprised when be punted up, said he'd been playing golf in Belmont this morning.

    That's the first big rain we've had since playing on the new No.6.
    I'll get down tomorrow sometime and walk that too.

    Just drove past Myer Park on the way home from in town, both pitches looked like lakes.

    Lot more rain has fallen in Newcastle than the northern end of the Lake.

    Yep both grounds are basically scratched up chook pens. I seen various pics and what was on offer on BarTv. Devastating for the grounds teams who put in the hard yards to make a decent playing pitch.

    31mm in the 12 hours since 6 a.m at my place, which is close to Athletics Field and Olympic's ground

    so yeah, a fair bit all things considered - no surprises that games get called off halfway through

    If you are wondering if/when the State government will step in to address the football grounds issue, please don’t hold your breath. If you are a wealthy NRL club however………….
