Catch-up dates for league, soccer

BOTH Group 2 and North Coast Football have been quick to act on the postponement of all their matches scheduled for last weekend.

North Coast Football had a spare weekend set aside for the start of August and all of the matches in senior divisions that weren't played last weekend will now be played then.

Group 2 has taken the step of actually moving their finals series back a week.

Their grand final was set to be played on Sunday, September 6 but that will now be played on the 13th.

This move has been made so the matches that weren't played on Sunday can be played at the end of the season.

Matches postponed in MNC Rugby will be played at a later time but the exact dates are yet to be determined.

The AFL North Coast can see the irony in the missed round of matches.

It has been standard practise in the local Australian Rules competition to have a spare weekend set aside in July in case of any wet weather postponements.

The league's committee didn't schedule a catch-up weekend for 2009 so the matches missed on the weekend will not be played.

Even the indoor sports were affected by the weather on the weekend.

State League Basketball matches that the Suns weren't played because of the road closures along the Pacific Highway.

The local basketball association even took the large step of calling off the primary schools and high schools matches on the weekend stating that the safety of the players and their families on the road was more important.
