    League 2 and 3 both grades on a Friday night at one venue. Would have to be at the Macquarie Bank at Speers Point wouldn’t it.

    i just don't get how you can mess-up the finals so bad -- are they intentionally trying to punish clubs? I feel sorry for the ZL2 and ZL3 finals. Imagine it not only being a Fri night game (will affect availabilities as well) but also sharing a ground to wipe out any atmosphere. Wow.

    The zones won't be handing over their cash to Northern. No way it will be there

    this gets me, you play either Saturday or Sunday all year, then they put your finals or GF on a friday night, WTF.

    Example: old mate who works permanent arvo so plays ZL3 or ZL2 on the weekends, cant play GF because the only Friday night game he plays all year is the GF, someone needs to get off the weed....
    finals start in 2 weeks Friday, not even enough time time to change a shift.

    Hopefully a good turnout at Monday nights finals series meeting for clubs to voice concerns.

    That meeting is for Interdistrict Comps not Zone League comps

    When I played I would have been all over a Friday night grand final. That's an extra 5 minutes in my lungs on the pitch and I dare say at the bottom of the pyramid, most blokes would appreciate the cool night air over the hot arvo sun.

    It's one night, the only problem will be if the Zones don't announce it asap, as long as people have the time to make arrangements it will be fine.

    2 fields thing is not a great idea though.

    Just when you think it can’t get worse: I’ve just heard that all games are at fletcher.

    Can someone please tell me I’m wrong?

    They have officially lost me. Across the last 5 yrs or so the ZPL GF has had decent crowds and has had hills and good viewing. Everything Fletcher doesn’t have

    Surely this is a late April fools joke? If they are prepared to go play it out at woop woop then just give the GFs back to the clubs. Imagine Dudley Park for example packed out on GF day. Plus the money made will all go back into the Zone league clubs.
