I wonder how much of the hill will be closed.

And it is going to be chaos getting out of the ground especially if a decent crowd still turns up.

But not much you can do when the weather dishes this sort of stuff up!

I'm going to wait till 20 minutes to kick off in the Red Lion before deciding whether to be brave or wimp out.

In Rnd 15 ( Storm game at Leichhardt ) they closed that bit of grass near the Hospital where lots of people park due to the rain, so I reckon they will do it again, just thought I'd put it out there.

Thank goodness it's still on! Even if it was still raining all week, every day, all day. Even the adjudicator tips the tigers by 18! Go tigers.

Glover St entrance (the hill side) will be closed.
Mary St entrance (the main entrance at the southern end of the ground) will be open

Yeah...hopefully they find something to play on the big screen...surely they could show the 5.30 NRL game, seeing as the crew from Fox are doing out game as well?

I remember a Friday night game against Manly at LO in '05 where they cancelled the curtain raisers due to rain, and they showed a Ch9 Origin highlights doco that had aired a few nights earlier

We must be due to see another replay of the 05 grandfinal.

I think they have issues also with having to order in food and pay security people. They probably hope a few might turn up between the gates opening and 7pm to eat, have a drink and spend some money on tigers jumpers, hats and flags. Will be interesting to see 15000 people arrive (hopefully they still get that many) between 7-7:30.

Campbelltown Stadium would never have areas closed off to Tigers fans

I just checked http://www.weather.com.au/nsw/leichhardt (at 5.52am)and it is indicating no more rain for today.

I think the hill will not be to bad.

They are just going to block of from the top hill toilets to the big screen so you can not access any where near the Glover st entrance(which is a quagmire even when it is dry) .

IF any thing i feel it will be a reduced crowd so get their at gates open if you want a seat,i know i will be!

A bit of damp weather should not keep our true supporters away
