I am a player for the greystanes 45s. As everyone who nows our team,realises that we struggled through last year and part of this year with various injuries and player shortages . Outnumbered we always did the sporting thing and played, knowing that we would get thrashed week in and week out . I heard a rumour that we were supposed to play Winston hills this weekend and that posted in these forums, this team were talking, saying that they were not going to have a full team, so instead of playing and being beaten by the last place stanes..they had the club close the ground. If this is true this is disgracefull. I could not find these comments posted.But the person whom told me is very reliable and assures me it is true.. I would like a reply from somebody to try and explain away this, as I am disgusted at hearing that such a tactic could be used to avoid maybe an embaressing loss....My team does not know I am posting this and this maybe my view only.. I would like to know what the other teams think....! The council had the field as open, and we inspected the ground and it looked fine. I do hope that this is not true.
