Ra­zors to shift home ground

Townsville Bulletin - - Game On -

THE North Queens­land Ra­zor­backs are set­ting them­selves to play at a home away from home to­mor­row.

With the del­uge of rain un­leashed on the city Wed­nes­day night and Thurs­day morn­ing, the sur­face at the Townsville Sports Re­serve for the Queens­land State League game has been deemed un­suit­able.

The Pigs will now al­most cer­tainly play de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Sun­shine Coast in Ayr to­mor­row af­ter­noon.

Coach Ken Mitchell said the shift was ‘‘ 95 per cent’’ con­firmed yes­ter­day.

‘‘ Talk­ing to the Bur­dekin Pan­thers club from the ( Townsville) Premier League and they are ac­tu­ally putting their sprin­klers on . . . they haven’t had any­where near the same amount of rain,’’ Mitchell said.

If it goes ahead it will be the sec­ond venue shift for the Ra­zor­backs, who were orig­i­nally sched­uled to play at Brolga Park.

A de­ci­sion on when the game will kick-off will be made to­day.
