And that'll be pushed out to 24th July now.
Subbies need to make a decision now.
I would say minimum of 3 weeks of competition before finals is necessary to make is worthwhile, otherwise you might as well just go straight to finals based on the current standings. Good luck getting players to turn up for 2 games if their team is already out of it, you'll just end up with guys playing playing multiple games and a mountain of injuries.Good plan - definitely playing into October is off the cards with pretty much everyone who has a cricket oval on their ground(s).
If finals goes from 3 weeks down to 2, then clubs will want 2 weeks of competition to try and push into top 4 while getting their combinations back on the field, and at least 2 weeks training to get back into the swing.
So we'd probably need to be back training with full contact no later than 16th August - tho our blokes would be happy with 1 training sesh
The question is which 2 weeks of the regular competition would be scheduled

My suggestion would be a 3 week competition, quarter finals, semi's and final, That way everyone has something to play for and your current standing still comes into play.
Week 1: 1v8, 2v7, 3v6, 4v5
Week 2: 1v8 winner plays 4v5 winner, 2v7 winner plays 3v6 winner
Week 3: Grand final.
I wonder if anyone will be able to confirm this. It’s a bold move if Subbies go this way.You heard it here first…. But sources will not be leaked.
Subbies are planning for 2022 to be a 10 club Division 1, maintaining 7 current clubs, 2 from Division 2 and 1 from Division 3. Clubs will be required to have 4 grades and colts. 5th grade optional. Division 2 remains 8, with the high possibility that A certain dislodged SS club in there. Clubs will be told what division they are in, no choices. It’s this division or nothing.
