Apparently so mate.. It is "Ladies Day" so if it ever happens it'll be this week you'd hope. Also pretty sure we've been given an ultimatum by subbies that if we don't field a 3's this week that it's binned for the rest of the year, so the club will be moving heaven and earth to get 3's on. again, probably to the detriment of the club when its probably just going to be a warm up game for 2's who are already going to get a fearful belting. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. what a situation.
We're copping it from subbies despite us expressing our concern about remaining in div 3 and fielding the teams. "Stay in div 3 they said. it'll be fun they said".
The days of subbies threatening clubs are over. The threat of relegation means nothing when many are fighting for their very existence. We had issues a few years ago when we said we couldn’t field a 4th grade and they said don’t worry it will be fun. Then two rounds in they said where is our 4th grade when we started forefeiting and threatened us with relegation.
On a side note there was talk earlier in the year of a Saints/Brothers merger. What was the sticking point over that not happening. Hindsight’s a beautiful thing but at the very least you would have put of all grades and been competitive in each.
