Stingrays washed out again

FOOTBALL

As their rivals rack up points, the Illawarra Stingrays have been stuck on the sidelines for the second straight week.

In what can only be considered bad luck, the Rays' round-four match with North West Sydney Koalas was the only fixture to be washed out.

It comes a week after the club's fixture against Manly United was the sole match not to be played in the round.

As a result, the Stingrays fall two games behind many of their title rivals and will more than likely be forced to play double-header weekends to make up.

Given both Manly and North West Sydney are two of the further away trips in the competition, the option of a midweek catch-up isn't feasible.

"It puts a bit of pressure on us when it comes to having availability for players on Saturdays," Stingrays coach Graham Shaw said.
