Watched the game was surprisingly good considering the conditions. Wests are the real deal. The field may be unplayable later in the year.I think it’s been great. Enjoyable to see talented teams battle in different, and challenging conditions. Wests very impressive.
Why would you cancel for rain?Poor and baffling decision not to postpone. Error ridden game due to the wet conditions resulting in a high number of breakdowns or turnovers. Not a good spectacle for the average punter. The womens' game after this will be a shocker. The groundsman will be having heart palpitations.

All the junior fields I played sports on down in Melbourne were worse than that. You just get on with it and play the conditionsNot sure if you’ve seen the impact this rain has had in SEQ. 6 days of pretty constant and at times heavy falls. Lots of towns and areas just north of Brissy have again been smashed by flash flooding, the systems looked like they could have similar impact on Brisbane.
Most clubs have had their fields closed all week.
Cant blame any of the clubs for postponing.

Brisbane is slightly different in that traditionally we get rain early in the year and have a very dry winter.Every situation needs to be assessed on it own merits. Health and safety being the utmost consideration.
