Predictions - Jan 9th

Postby Claire Mon Jan 04, 2010 1:47 pm

Bath v Welwyn Warriors
Hillcroft v Hampstead
Purley v Hitchin think that if Hitchin can play as a team for the whole game they will be stronger than Purley...
Reading Wildcats v East Grinstead - I think that EG will want to prove themselves after that big Reading win before Christmas!!!
Walcountian Blues v Spencer - COME ON THE BLUES!!

East Coast v Panthers - They're back with a team, and I think they may be able to take it to Brighton...
East Grinstead A v Cambridge - Personally I've lost faith in EG...
Hitchin A v Croydon - Because we're cool... 8)
London v Bucks - Bucks have a little more edge, but London will keep it close...
Reading 2 v Blues 2 - Blues have got this by about a six goal lead, I'm sure...
fight, dress your wounds, then fight again...

I reckon most of the matches in the South will be called off due to a few inches of snow on the pitch.

Is snow a big issue? I can see ice being a safety concern, but within reason the fluffy stuff adds to the fun, although it gives the home team more preparation duty, and makes the ref's job tricky with smudged line markings.

Is this about insurance liability?

Personally I don't think it's a huge issue to play on but in my experience it is often the groundskeepers who will forbid matches in those kinds of conditions.

Very high possibility in the North. We're looking to try and wangle a deal for a 3G astro, but even then there's nothing stopping them from freezing. That and the drive between Manchester/Hull/Newcastle won't be very enjoyable. I'd imagine it's the same down south.

Could be a very interesting (read crappy) season for UK lacrosse in general, which is a shame in a World Championship year.

It would be discussed at next months SEMLA meeting, with one or two outcomes possible

  • It could be the only way to get all fixtures played is to extend the season by a week or two, and all playoff games etc.. would have to move back to accommodate (but the kybosh could be put on this if playoff games etc.. then couldn't be held - there is a cricket strip in the middle of Readings two pitches after all ....)
  • Or not, in which case teams would have to play the games to be rearranged on Sundays or in the week (or come up with some devilish 3-way thing on a Saturday), and the 4th April deadline for league fixtures would stand

I love Joe's idea! Multiball will always end well lol But on a serious note snow wouldnt be too sad on the pitch, just more of a bitch for those like RAF Marham having to drive down to canterbury this weekend...long drive, which will most certainly result in a few accidents, especially if kents typically un-gritted!

On another note i think if you can get to your destination, snow would just make for a more fun game! :D

The Canterbury v RAF Marham game is off due to a frozen pitch. The groundsman has declared the pitch unfit. The travel to Canterbury isn't the problem (assuming the roads would be clear) but a frozen pitch is different to playing in snow.

I agree with the possibility of Sunday or mid-week games if necessary, especially in East Div 2 where goal difference may be a factor for promotion at the end of the season.

What are the rules if your opponents pitch is playable (maybe it is 3G or sand based Astro) but road conditions mean that you cannot get there?

Common sense has to apply when we're dealing with such extreme circumstances as the current weather.
If the pitch is fine but the opposition cannot reasonably be expected to make the journey in safety then, in my opinion, the game would have to be re-arranged.
Which Club would care more about winning three points if it cost injuries to, or even the life, of a player trying to get to the game on dangerous roads?
The final decision is the SEMLA Fixture Secretary's but I'm pretty sure that he would use the rule of common sense
