Floods force WNBL game rescheduling


The WNBL is announcing scheduling changes for the coming weekend as a consequence of the Queensland flood situation.

Logan Thunder and Bendigo Spirit who were originally scheduled to play on Friday night, will now play on Sunday afternoon at 1.00pm, while the Townsville Fire vs Bendigo Spirit contest, originally scheduled for Saturday night, will now take place on Saturday afternoon at 1.00pm AEST.

The League was advised this afternoon that a number of Logan players have been extremely affected by the flood conditions, making the scheduled Friday night game with the Bendigo Spirit, under the circumstances, untenable.

As a result, the Townsville Fire, who were scheduled to play the Bendigo Spirit on Saturday night, have agreed to move their game forward to Saturday afternoon at 1:00pm to allow the Logan Thunder staff and playing group the additional time to attend to personal matters, so that their contest with the Spirit can still go ahead, instead re-scheduled for Sunday.

The Women's National Basketball League, Logan Thunder and Bendigo Spirit wish to send their sincere thanks to the Townsville Fire and the Fire’s major partners, including their naming rights sponsor McCafe`, the scoretable staff and officials, referees and volunteers for greatly assisting in the scheduling change, allowing all of Round 13’s scheduled games to go ahead.

The re-scheduled games for Round 13 will take place as follows:

Townsville McCafe`Fire vs Bendigo Bank Spirit, Saturday, 15 January, 1:00pm AEST, New Projects Australia Stadium
BDS Logan Thunder vs Bendigo Bank Spirit, Sunday, 16 January, 1:00pm AEST, Logan Metro

what about for Adelaide vs Gold Coast on Sunday - anyone know if they're having any problems getting to training or being able to get out of the Gold Coast? I believe the airports (Brissy and Coolangatta) are still operating?

I guess it depends on whether players can get to the airport?
