South Hobart, the reigning champions in the Forestry Tasmania Southern Premier League, moved 4 points clear at the top with a 4-2 away win over Olympia Warriors on the artificial pitch at Warrior Park on Friday night.

Hobart had record April rainfall during the week and the Beachside versus Tilford Zebras game at Sandown Park was called off, but it could rain every day all year and games could still go ahead at Warrior Park, a unique Tasmanian venue.
