Narrabri District Cricket Association’s 2021-22 first grade one day season has once again been marred by rain which forced both matches on Saturday to be washed out and declared draws.

After all seven rounds of play before the Christmas/New Year break were either washed out or cancelled due to rain and flooding, a revised draw was released in December.

The first grade one day comp was initially scheduled to resume in February, but the revised draw saw the third edition of the Coates Hire T20 Super Slog competition postponed until next season and four first grade matches across January replaced it.

The four NDCA sides were keen to finally get back on the field after just one hour of play was contested across what was initially scheduled to be rounds one to seven, in round four on Saturday, November 20, which has since been recognised as round one on the new draw.

However, cricketers across the Narrabri Shire woke to heavy rain on Saturday morning, which washed both matches out.

RSL was scheduled to take on Tatts at Leitch Oval, which had been relocated to Collins Park prior to match day, while Tourist Hotel and the Western Razorbacks were set to meet at Hogan Oval.

Those sides have now been forced to wait three more weeks to play against one another.

The teams are hopeful of returning to the park this Saturday in round three of the first grade one day season.

Tourist Hotel will take on RSL at Collins Park while Tatts and the Western Razorbacks go head-to-head at Hogan Oval.
