As Southport and Port have a bye, why are they not playing one another to make up for the lost game a few weeks back ? Wasn't the announcement at the time that the byes have been deliberately put in to cater for required rescheduled games?

Well that's no excuse, its only a virus that kills 1 in 33 people !! 

Actually it is a half decent reason i guess but why wouldn't they schedule Werribee v Port - both teams behind in games due to lockdowns, both teams have byes.

Who has ever been able to follow the AFL's logic? Who knows why they do and don't do things? 

It makes sense to me for Port and Werribee to play as you think they would want to get as many games in as they can, because there is every chance Victoria will be in lockdown no 5 in 2 or 3 weeks time, when the new cases surface from the thousands NSW people who came to Victoria to beat their lockdown, bringing the virus with them.

The Frankston boys have been stooged! 6.30pm in Werribee! A great time and location for supporters too!

I guess it fits with the Swans AFL team playing in Geelong at 1pm Sunday

Frankston station
