Traffic on roads leading to The Grandstand can be very heavy on Saturday afternoons, and even worse if it rains. Allow yourself enough time to travel, so that you can be sure of getting to the venue 10 minutes before the hour.

Tough game in very hot conditions with good defending from both sides and equally poor finishing.
Whites probably edged Reds in possession and their buildup play was easier on the eye. Reds went ahead though when Sam challenged Gerard in goal in a 50/50 which saw the ball loop over Gerard's head. Lynz then had to leave the field for 15 mins after he went crashing through the nets and hit his wrist hard on the concrete. Whites took advantage as Fred headed in a lovely ball floated in from midfield by Mark.
Both teams squandered some good chances to take the lead so in the end 1-1 was probably a fair result.
