The Southern Football Netball League says its position remains unchanged and it’s aiming to start its season on Saturday, July 25.

The SFNL board met on Tuesday night and resolved to push on, despite the extension of Victoria’s state of emergency until July 19.

League officials are linking up with clubs from all four divisions this week.

ABC Back Roads.. ‘Rokewood-Corindhap

Last nights ABC program had a story about Victorian towns Rokewood and Corindhap that mainly focused on the local Footbal & Netball Club. Former Nth Ballarat champion Shaune "Spider" Moloney is coach of the footy team and he featured in a cuple of segments. . The show highlighted the importance of sporting clubs to small towns.

It showed a different side of Spider to his days as a fiecly competitive full back especially when playing on Nick Sauntner.  To those who remember Spider's playing for the Roosters I recommend viewing the show.

The program is repeated
