    Ok: Substitute Autralians for ARU.

    Kids, so one day? If so, Same principle applies (3 /4 /5 days stuff does bring special problems but then cricket is an odd sport anyway - and I played it for 30 years).

    When you plan a league you allow time for postponments etc. It's basic planning.

    Ok, to give you an idea. Council comes out and says Smith Park is allocated as follows. Every saturday from 1 April to 31 August to Rugby League, every Sunday in the same period to Rugby Union. League can train Monday and Wednesday nights, union can have Tues and Thurs. Ground will be unavailable for use from 1 September to 15 September. Then Cricket can have it until 15 March after which it is unavailable until 1 April.

    Council also reserve the right to close the park at any time uf we feel the conditions may cause damage

    Ok. So you've got a 12 match season, build in 2 rain days, with semi finals in week 15 and grand final in week 16. Grounds all booked, umpires arranged, etc.

    Then it doesn't rain. So do you move finals ahead 2 weeks or give kids a 2 week break?

    Or it rains at 1 ground but not at others. What happens then?

    As I said, seniors have a couple of spare weeks (eg this weekend being a long weekend is spare for Sydney suburban), but it cant happen in juniors as school hols hace to be factored in as well

    So how come the rest of the world manages to cope? We manage perfectly well. To start with. Get rigd of the semis and the final and that is two free weeks! It really is not that hard to plan.

    Funilly enough, we too have council parks and we have to book pitches on them as well. The council can close the parks when they wish. Funny how the Brits can cope. We are a small island and we can manage our space to handle replayed games. Odd that it is beyound the Aussie system

    Ok, but when do the replays happen? Midweek? Play sat and sun?

    Rugby has access to the grounds for 24 weeks max. There are in most junior comps 14 games. No games on Easter, Queens birthday long weekend in June (state championships are on then) or the middle week of school hols. So that leaves 6 weeks. Generally need 2-3 weeks for preseason training and practice/grading games. Then 2 weeks for end of season finals (and getting rid of them is not an option, better to just abandon a meaningless round 9 game).

    You will never understand our loves of fixed leagues and finals, we will never understand your loves of first past the post, promotion/relegation and cups
