    It might snow the first ever VFL/AFL match for snow if that happens.

    I guess if its going to be cold, wet and windy - then it is pretty handy if Wines gets suspended - as probably their no.1 'contested bull' in the midfield.
    The Western Bulldogs.....shortest premiership drought in the league.

    Not sure about the AFL, plenty of games at the Western Oval felt like it was close and I remember one game in the late 70's early 80's where it hailed so much it looked like snow.
    The NRL on the other hand see below -

    We had a glorious day in Ballarat yesterday. Sunshine all day, about 14 degrees, barely any wind.

    Today, it's been miserable, rain all day and unlikely to improve all week. It was always going to happen.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    I've long considered that games played in Hobart, due to the freezing conditions and windswept nature of the ground, are not part of AFL canon, and therefore anything is likely to happen. I fear the same is true of Ballarat.
