Sam Froling Waratah League

Surprised to see a few names this past weekend in the Waratah League Sam Froling for Manly and few others Hickey at Inner West, Waratah League has picked up this year even though it could be due to Covid but nonetheless

I watched Norths absolutely hammer the Bulls. Poor old Craig Moller had a Barry Crocker. Nothing went right for him. Jordan Hunter had a good one.

Probably makes Manly favourites with Froling on board though north's will be a big chance too.

I watched the north’s v bulls as well, bulls are so bad. Moller looked like he was trying to hard with that useless lot around him, the block on Hunters jam was truly good. He still finish with 15p 16b and 7a in what was not his best performance. Hunter and Tommy Garlepp worked him over and Knight plan to jam the paint and let anyone but Moller shoot worked well. Hunter showing lots of promise though, north’s are still a very good Waratah team and well coached by Knight.

Manly v north’s would be a good GF with only central coast as the only other side that could upset the scenario. Kazoo coaching Central coast and doing very well.

With changes to Community Sport announced today, might not be a league anymore, which is a shame, but worth it if we can get back to more activity in coming months.

Kickert did not play against Norths not that may have made a difference.

Loaded Bulls not really doing the job.

Bulls loaded, lmao, other than Moller they are useless. Kickett has not played in weeks, he got out when he saw how the team went.

Canberra withdrew both Men and Women from the comp due to Covid as a main reason.

It doesn't say it’s over, not certain where you get that information from.

Its over, it reads


Cease activities that result in the mixing of participants and staff from different regions, for example by ceasing zone, regional or state championships or competitions*

*Examples of inter-regional mixing include activities which bring together participants (including spectators and officials) from organisations in different regions of Sydney, from a rural area into a metro area and vice versa, and movement between different rural areas​​​.​

This looks pretty clear. If you can't have comps which require people to travel to different parts of Sydney or in and out of Sydney it’s done. It’s a shame because clubs were trying so hard to follow guidelines, but there was a sense this season was never going to see a final series anyway.

Uncertainty has been awful. Better to call it and let people focus on future.

At this stage it is a NSW Public Health recommendation only and can't be enforced. BNSW can still proceed with all their competitions if they believe their members and the wider community is not at risk.

Given the downward trend in numbers over the past few days and the fact there has been no documented transmission through community sport I can't see how they could cancel their competitions.

I'm sure they will do their own risk assessment and they would be very cautious about continuing against the recommendations. Especially if there is a community transmission from basketball in the future. That would not go well for BNSW

I imagine in a litigious society that if community sport did continue against the recommendations of NSW Health and there was definite proof of transmission of COVID cases through community sport. I would be sure that someone would attempt to set precedent.

#620 because it's commonsense to follow the recommendations of NSW Public Health

Most organisations I'd wager are going above and beyond the public health recommendations for these very reasons. I know my organisation has hired third-party consultants to help here, and since the very beginning we have basically been one stage ahead of the current recommendations.

I think you'll find that a directive from NSW Health in this situation cannot be side stepped. The Chief Medical Officer can make an order and it is essentially law.
I’m not saying it’s justified, but can’t be ignored.

Heard a rumour that basketball was the only sport in NSW that wouldn't support the guidelines.

Tragic if true.

All junior country games cancelled.... all one weekend worth. Yet somehow Metro teams seem unaffected.

Metro juniors are just a big a shambles.

Have now been put into hubs for a 6 week period where you play teams in that hub.
Some areas have 3 or 4 Div 1 teams,others only have 2 and the rest are dive 2 and 3.

Apparently you are to play the teams in those hubs and then see from there.

If that is the way it is to happen then it is a joke.

there was a full round played yesterday and results still cannot get put up by the end of the day on there website.

Feel sorry for the country teams when they only play once a month and it was cancelled and then suppose to play a weekend tournament and the first one was cancelled this weekend just gone.

Seniors is getting less and less with Newcastle and Maitland pulling out last weekend to add to COE,Penrith,Comets pulled out before the restart and Canberra who pulled out a week ago.
Central Coast did not pull out as they have apparently been classified as a part of greater Sydney region.

Central coast spanked north's star side with kazoo taking the coaching honours with no name side.

Yes it’s a shambles but still better than nothing.

Wasn't a full round yesterday

Only some Hills v Penrith games and some Norths v Inner West with a smattering of others.

Sydney Comets in the same "hub" as Camden... doesn't make sense really but this is BNSW. So the cents count for more than sense.

Yes,there were some no games at Hills and I also heard Manly forfeited to Blacktown in ylm on saturday because they did not want Blacktown coming into their hub.

I heard the reason for the Manly forfeit was they didn't have enough players available.

In regards to MJL the allocation of the competition into hubs is far from ideal however it has been done in conjunction with discussions with NSW Health and the only way they were permitted to proceed.

A lot of people are complaining but isn't it better for the kids to play some basketball than nothing? What is the alternative?

Any updates about the so called waratah 2 men tournament in october, assuming thats prob cancelled as that would join together rural teams with metro ones

7 out of 10 teams left but it does all seem pointless. To many buys, bulls don't play for three weeks.
