Do we think the vtca is just going to call this first round off as they have the spare round later or just play for the teams that can get on??
Spotty will be ready to go. With the weather this week, there really should be little or no reasons why wickets should not be ready. If clubs go to the effort of being ready, and some don't, then the VTCA should not penalise those that make the effort by calling the round off.

Yeah I know what you mean I was just up at parkdale walking my dog and it's miles off so they won't be playing there... Poor guy reckons he's been there every day he can council didn't top dress it till last week... So sometimes not the clubs fault
 
Looks like i jumped the gun about our ground being ready. 1 week off apparently. Council top dressed the square 2 weeks after the footy club finished! Anyhow, any word from the meeting last night about the first round?

With the make up round does the whole league have to be called off or do the games that just don't get on get played in the make up round
Good question - I thought it was only available if the whole round got called off. Surely with a fair amount of uncertainty about how many grounds/games will be right to go – is it not better to postpone it all to the spare day? We will be fine if it doesn’t rain – 2 more drying days will be good, but don’t know if we will get that

On another note... Page 60 of the HS today, I hope the Vtca fine doutta for Brendan Nash wearing his west indies helmet?! It should have the standard ankle tap across the front I believe! I'm sure his 13 was blistering?

I remember playing with a few guys returning from district and our club being fined for having their logos... This was tongue cheek SS. But playing v yarraville for a minute I thought I was a lot better cricketer and was playing district v nth melb or essendon! ;) come on Sledge it's early, where's your sense of humor???
 
If he gets off to a bad start to the year and keeps wearing his West Indies gear i'd expect him to have a few sledges thrown at him.
Only ordinary players would consider sledging him.
Also - didnt he get off the plan last weekend. Getting a new helmat for a local cricket game would have been the last thing on his mind i would have thougth.
And yes, watched yarraville in the final a couple of years ago. thought i was watching Footscray Edgewater CC.
