TREVALLYN and Beauty Point will face off again today in the TCL A-grade grand final replay after rain washed out last week's game.
Trevallyn was in a good position last week, having Beauty Point in trouble at 7-143, when rain forced the abandonment of the match.
The two sides will start afresh today with the possibility of showers again forecast.
"We were very disappointed when the rain came last week because we had them on the ropes," Trevallyn captain-coach Damian Whybrow said.
"We bowled and fielded really well and they will have it in the back of their mind what happened.
"But at the end of the day, we can only put our best performance on the park this weekend and worry about the game, not the weather."
The TCL hierarchy has clarified its rules regarding the outcome if there is another washout.
"There has been some discussion after last week's washout about what will happen should the forecast rain interfere with this Saturday's reserve day," TCL secretary Jason Reed said. "Last year in the tied preliminary final game between Longford and Trevallyn, the TCL declared Trevallyn the winner and it moved into the grand final as it finished the home and away season on top of the ladder.
"In the instance of a washed-out grand final, finishing on top of the ladder does not declare you premier. It is actually the team that qualifies first which in this instance would see Beauty Point declared the premier."
Beauty Point captain- coach Stuart Prewer said his side had been praying for rain last week when it was in trouble with the bat but felt they fought their way back into a reasonable position with six overs left.
"I think the experience of playing in a pressure grand final last week will do our younger players a lot of good," he said. "We don't really want to win a grand final by default if it rains again and would rather play the game.
"We hope we can get a good game in."
