Hope for women games to start

RUGBY LEAGUE: Round two of the Gladstone and Districts Rugby League women's competition is still up in the air after heavy rain continued in the region.

The first round was a washout, but GDRL secretary Wendy Deacon remains hopeful that games will go ahead.

However, the forecast today is not good with heavy rain and storms predicted to add to the 150mm and above that has already fallen in the Gladstone region since the weekend.

Falls up to 115mm are forecast between today and Friday.

"The 300mm for a week will not do the fields any good,” Deacon said.

"We'll see what happens, but we'll probably decide sooner rather than later and speak with the people in Rockhampton.”

If the sun comes out and dries the sodden fields, reigning premiers Gladstone Wallabys and Tannum Seagals will go head-to-head from noon this Saturday at Marley Brown Oval, while the Calliope Roosters have the bye.

It is a re-match of last year's preliminary final.

The women's competition includes Rockhampton-based teams Norths Chargers, Emu Park, Rockhampton Brothers and Woorabinda.
