Agree with both of these points - footy would be a great community lifter however may now not be priority one. Perhaps Mother Nature has determined the fate of the um?

I’d be happy at rising 44 to have a run for Walwa to keep them up and going...

I was thinking the same thing. If the community thought a footy side could lift their spirits and be a place to meet up each week for a cuddle, wouldn’t it be great if a well known local took them on for a year. Who cares about the results. Just something to lift spirits.
probably wouldn’t be hard to get a team to play for free in 2020 with all gate and canteen profits above the regular club expenses to go to helping the community.

Walwa cound not find the 60 or so blokes needed to field two mens team apparantly. If the comp was changed to a single grade, like Northern Riverina or Millawa FL (Mildura area) then chances are they could have found the 30 players. Pity the league won’t adapt to suit the population.

The seconds have been scrapped for next year mate. It’s a seniors only comp from now on.

That’s it. Seniors only and if 2 clubs have sufficient numbers on the day they can have a gentlemen’s hitout prior to the main game. Time to think a little differently...

You seem to have your finger on the pulse Old Kenny.
Any truth to the rumour there is a meeting tomorrow night to decide if the Competition goes ahead at all this Season?
i hope it does as the communities need a place to meet and chat and also have a beer or two but I fear with all the destruction from the fires the volunteers may be rebuilding the communities

There’s a league meeting tomorrow night is all I know rip.
You’ve got to wonder how Tumba is tracking. They’re a bit off the radar up that way.

Tumba is also the Murray Rugby League premiers from last season so you would hate for the Aussie Rules team to fold.
