    Bit of a dissapointing weekend in my opinion. Scotland have a team drop out. Ireland only have 1 match. Wales have washed out games and dissappointingly Crusaders get thumped. Looks as they the PNG and Jamaican competitions are running well though.

      I wouldn’t say that. The Moray team, just looking a bit closer at their website seem to have gone down to the lower division, may have be just a more realistic place for them to be at this point in time.

      Ireland have been tough to get games up from what I hear… but look with all these new nations its hard to start a sport and have games on, players are not paid, they play because they want and can find the time, with any new developing nation they do what they can.

      I remember a few years ago Jamaica were also struggling to get games on every week, but they work through it and in the end things fall in place. Sometimes it can take only a couple years for it to work, other times it can take years and years.

      PNG in past years also have had their own issues with matches abandoned through the season…. and Crusaders, oh well teams get beat.

    druzik – the Moray team in the lower division is a separate outfit which developed out of a local youth set-up (as have Aberdeen and Ayrshire). The Moray who have suspended for the season are a long-time team based on the local services base. That can cause them problems – and this season it seems to have got too much for them but they still hope to play friendlies.
