    Let us hope that the reference to zonal championships etc relates to the decision in March to cancel Johns, Daley Cups etc and that Presidents Cup/Sydney Shield are major competitions not "community sport", however, some really crazy things are happening. Despite the daily numbers being close to Zero in NSW and I cant remember the last case in my area, last week, the Council wrapped up all the soccer posts at my local ground and removed the hoops from the basketball court.

    The fear mongering is getting ridiculous. I see the daily reports from NSW Health at work and at the moment it's about a dozen or less new cases each day, all traceable to specific clusters and put into quarantine. It's very similar to the rates we were seeing when sport started back up again in July.

    Maitland virtually is a rep side. They have their 5 or 6 big signings and with no Canterbury Cup they also have Newcastle Knights Cup squad players available to them, plus they have been able to sign some extra quality players returning to Newcastle area from QLD due to the QCup being cancelled. In a normal season the Maitland team would be much weaker then this with many of their current 17 playing elsewhere.

    And yet another in SS as Charly Runciman scored 2 tries for Helensbugh today.

    Presidents Cup

    West Wollongong 18 Glebe Burwood 18
    Wenty 24 Western Rams 6
    Maitland 30 Thirroul 10

    SS

    Cronulla Caringbah 24 East Campbelltown 14
    Helensburgh 38 University 16

    Wenty's win means that Rams are the only side without a win in Presidents Cup, while Wenty and East Campbelltown are both winless in SS after their round 1 game was cancelled.

    The previously abandoned fixture between Helensburgh and Moorebank in Round 4 of Sydney Shield has been revived and will be played 7pm Wednesday at Terry Lamb Complex.

    Belrose v Wenty from the same round is considered a forfeit.

    He must owe Yates big time because most of the guys to achieve this market in more recent times would have lifetime earnings that higher than the total net worth of the Windsor Leagues club.

    Looks like Helensburgh have hit some form coming into the back end of the season knocking off moorebank in their catch up game.

    He played there and Trent Barrett was impressed with him during the Blacktown and Manly arrangement.

    The downside of only 4 Sydney teams in the Presidents Cup is that there are no games in the greater sydney this weekend. Hills are still theoretical possibilities for the top 4 but the 5 teams in front of them all have a game in hand.

    Thirroul vs Glebe Burwood & Maitland vs Wollongong Wests are the vital games this weekend while North Sydney should wrap a spot against the wooden spoon bound Rams. Wenty vs CYMS has no bearing on the finals.

    In SS, 7 teams are theoretically still in the hunt for the top 4, with only the winless East Campbelltown and Wenty no hope, but University should be closed out today, with expectations that Cronulla Caringbah should run riot. Belrose vs Ryde Eastwood tomorroe could be a Grand Final preview

    Presidents Cup

    Dubbo 30 Wenty 10
    Glebe 36 Thirroul 18
    Maitland 48 West Wollongong 0

    Incredible score from Maitland, with James Bradley scoring 5 tries before half time. In round 2 Bradley was relegated to the Pickers reserve grade side. Pat Matautai played his first game for Maitland today, and with the border closures, James Taylor, has ceased his fly in fly out regime and has relocated to the Hunter and signed with Maitland for 2021.

    Dubbo look a fair team but the Wenty side looks weaker each week. Wollongong Wests will need a big turnaround to repel Hills next week with the season on the line for both sides.

    SS

    Cronulla Caringbah 26 University 20

    University look a much better side than last year - it is surprising that Moorebank put 40 on them last week. The Sharks were either even or behind all game until the last few minutes. Jacob Gagan needs to go looking for the ball if it doesnt come to him.
