BREAKING NEWS - VSDCA Tribunal outcome (Altona v Hoppers Crossing) in relation to Altona/Hobsons Bay City Council not putting down the covers & not even preparing a wicket - Saturday November 18th,

Unfortunately after the meeting tonight with VSDCA Tribunal our protest versus Altona was dismissed.

I am incredibly disappointed and pissed off with this decision particularly after it what occurred at our ground a couple of years ago against Malvern in the 2nd XI in November 2015 at Hogans Road Reserve.

I do feel a lack of responsibility here but don’t feel as though we could of had any stronger of an argument then what we provided.

Will be happy to talk further to this on Thursday Night after training.

In the interim I sincerely hope we absolutely flog them tomorrow in the T20 tomorrow night.

Let’s ultimately be the bigger club, and avoid referencing back to it either at the ground tomorrow or via social media (again, I will elaborate the social media aspect on Thursday Night).

Apologises that I couldn’t have better news.

Cheers (Jake Porter - Hoppers Crossing Cricket Club president).
Thank you, Brenton, for so promptly posting the outcome of the hearing. If you feel so inclined, and I will understand if you do not, I would be particularly interested to know if the hearing clarified which party was responsible for the laying of the cover.

A timely reminder of exercising care managing covers in windy conditions was evident for all to see at the WACA on day 5. It was reported in yesterday's H/S that curator Matt Page was sent to hospital with concussion after wind lifted a tarpaulin and knocked him over.
On another topic, it was not so long ago RPBroady hosted a subbies finals match, yet, it fofeited in at least 2 of its teams in the final round in the VTCA before the the Christmas break and possibly in its one-day Sunday team as well, there being no results to date posted for that match. It must surely be concerning for the likes of Mitch Streiff and his dad, and others, to see their former club in such decline. I have no idea of the cause. I hope it can be saved from oblivion.

In another thread it was mentioned they have withdrawn their Firsts and Seconds from the competition, and will now only play a one day team. What a fall from grace.

Anyone know what happened at Ivanhoe yesterday,match abandoned???
My mail is that the pitch was not ready for play at 1pm due to rain the previous day. Then, one umpire refused to wait around for further inspections causing play to be abandoned against the wishes of both sides. If that mail is accurate, you would hope the umpire responsible is permanently "rostered off".

Why couldn't the game have taken place with the remaining umpire officiating at the bowlers' end throughout the match? Anyone know the relevant bylaw?
 
As much as I think Caulfield has one foot into the GF, whose brave enough to name the final 6 for North/West and South/East?
I think after this round it will either become clearer or even more close in the S/E. Elsternwick v Box Hill, Ormond v Brighton, Croydon v Malvern and Balwyn v Bayswater are all 50/50 at the moment.

A bit easier to guess in the N/W, top 5 is pretty secure in my eyes, with Ivanhoe, Yarraville and Altona to fight out for the 6th spot.

Agree, I think Caulfield and Oakleigh will finish top 2 but the other spots are wide open, any of the next 8 could fill the last 4 spots. You won't want to finish 6th though as Caulfield have the flag in the bag.

Welcome back! You have omitted Ivanhoe from your scenario if Melton win the protest. Would Altona and Ivanhoe then both be on 30 pts?

South/East:
Caulfield
Oakleigh
Noble Park
Box Hill
Brighton
Malvern

North/West
Melton
Williamstown
Brunswick
Plenty Valley
Kew
Yarraville

There will be a few teams pushing for an Outright this round (as always) to sneak in. Should be intriguing viewing.

In S/E I think Bayswater will hold their spot and Brighton will drop out. Malvern look favourites to win their last two which will see them in, think Brighton will drop their last two and get leapfrogged. Whoever wins this week out of Box Hill vs Balwyn, Brighton vs Elsternwick, Mt Waverley vs Noble will go away a long way to staking their spot. If Noble drop this game then they could be out as they have Oakleigh at Oakleigh in the last round.

South/East
Caulfield
Oakleigh
Noble
Bayswater
Malvern
Box Hill
