Woodbridge were to host the Midwest Brumbies (Mudgee) at Grenfell on Sunday, and it appeared that these matches would be going ahead until the deluge on Saturday saw these games called off on Saturday evening. Henry Lawson Oval was in good condition and while the Grenfell area was accessible, the road between Mudgee and Wellington was shut.

Round three of the comp kicks off Saturday at Pride Park Orange when the Orange Vipers host the Panorama Platypi in a local derby.
