Today's games marked the end of the normal round robin games and the top teams in each division. Though still not clear how the tables stand the announcement by the PSNA executive puts the season calendar back on track and the march toward the grand final begins in earnest next week.
At a meeting after the days matches at the Bisini courts this afternoon, President Lynn Uvaou and her executive went through various issues confronting the Association this season in an effort to conclude the season strongly and prepare for next season.
Several resolutions were passed including the ratification of a request to get the administration of the next season started off early and the endorsement of the need for a player to actually take the court for a minimum four games in order to be eligible to play for a particular team. This particular ruling puts at odds the current practice of recognising reserves as eligible players even though they may never have taken the court.
Full details of minor premierships and the divisional ladders and the draws for next Saturday were not at hand this afternoon but it is expected that the matches next Saturday will start as early as 09:30 in the morning so you'll have to be early to catch those matches.
NTH will endeavour to have all the above details to you as early in the new week as is possible.
