I heard that South are having two teams in the top tiers. WTF is going on, I thought that each club was only allowed one. I hope Olympia are allowed the same grace and for that matter any club.

Clarence much improved from last week, maybe a turning point for them, Launceston City had one a few weeks back maybe this was Clarence's. Time will tell.
