Oh! No! Not again!
What a difference a day makes! One day, everything is fine, next day we have a truck-load of trouble. By now, we should have had a fair idea of who is making the strongest bid for the Winter Cup and the chance to leap up the ladder or to leave the rest of the field in the dust. Unfortunately, SARS-Cov-2-delta had other ideas and, like a cane toad in a box of bananas, it smuggled itself through our best laid defences, and put paid to the best laid plans of mice and men. If it is any consolation, the weather looked like being damp and cold, so it could have been a bit miserable out there, and CJ would have been off playing elsewhere.
But, all is not lost. On the assumption that the five day lock-down will be enough, and play will be allowed next week, the calendar has been modified, and the scheduled first round has been postponed until then, with the second round rescheduled to 31 July. Not wanting to sound too pessimistic, but there is a chance that more play will need to be abandoned. In that event, the next slot available to reschedule the Winter Cup will be 14 and 21 August.
