Rain plays havoc with local cricket
By TIM HOWARD
WET weather has played havoc with today's BCU Premier League and Clarence River Cricket Association (CRCA) matches.
CRCA president Jeff Hackett said the premier league game between South Services and Brothers at Ellem Oval was on, but the other game between Westlawn and Tucabia at McKittrick Park had been called off.
"Johnny Holmes was able to roll the wicket at Ellem this afternoon," Hackett said yesterday.
"But the ground at McKittrick is absolutely saturated. The wicket is probably ok, but the outfield is sodden."
In the lower grades the game at Lower Fisher Turf between the two Coutts Crossing second grade sides was on as was the third grade game on Lower Fisher 2 between South Services and Easts White.
Another game also likely to go ahead was the second grade match between Tucabia and Brothers at Ulmarra.
"At the moment those games are still on, but a final decision will be made in the morning," Hackett said.
Games that are definitely off are the second grade game between South Services and Westlawn at Rushforth Park 2 and the third grade game at Rushforth Park 1 Westlawn and Easts Green.
The second grade game at JJ Lawrence between East and Tucabia 2 is off as is the third grade game between Coutts Crossing and Brothers at Coutts Crossing.
