Certainly looks like everyones playing for 2nd in N/W,with Kews' side ,how do they get it under 20 points seeing its crammed with 1st class and premier players?,makes a mockery of the system if they can,could someone do an analysis?
 
Has anyone heard this rumour that I heard that Glen Eira Council maybe culling up to 6 Turf wicket tables over the next 2 years as I was told it’s costing more $$$ for the council to maintain the upkeep then the clubs put in.
Just hope this is a rumour as this could destroy Turf cricket in Glen Eira but Turf cricket across the state as if 1 council does this others councils will follow.
I wounder if the VSDCA,CSB,MCA and MCC ClubX1 competitions know about this?

I asked a curator in the Monash area and he had not heard anything about it. He thought they might hand them back to the clubs to look after if that was the case and also seemed to think Caufield and Ormond would be safe.

Might be the case with Caulfield and Ormond but remember Moorabbin is also in the sub district but if Glen Eira does this the above clubs may not have a say in it .
But you would be crazy to get rid of Turf grounds but if they did the grounds that 3rd+4th X1 and lower X1 that play on could go and keep the Turf grounds for 1st+2nds only.
Let’s hope this just a rumour.

I think it more likely Council may be considering handing over responsibility for pitch preparation to the clubs rather than "culling" them. In an endeavour to ease alarm, I advise that all of the pitches handed over to clubs over here are still in use. It is not the end of the world! However, I think clubs should expect Council to provide them with the rollers and cylinder mowers and storage facilities. This has been the experience over here.

I have a feeling Caufield and Ormond already prepare their own wickets. But you are correct...if it happened there would be a roll on effect across other councils. I think clubs would come to some sort of agreement to purchase equipment off the councils.

Damiano with his 20th century. Athulathmudali, the pro for Noble Park hits long bombs....one nearly cleared the clubrooms and almost landed in the pokies car park at NP,on the full against Mount this weekend.
 
One round gone. Endeavour Hills and Moorabbin gone. Oakleigh, Caulfield , Ormond and Noble Park probable finalists. Brighton and Malvern look to have improved. Elsternwick and Croydon will struggle. Hard to assess some of the east teams. EARLY CALL - finalists - Oakleigh, Caulfield, Ormond, Noble Park, Brighton and Malvern.
Not bad effort to call this in November. All top 6 correct except Box Hill takes Noble parks spot in final 6, still just one game out.
