Wild weather has forced the postponement of Friday night's AFL Southern NSW women's grand final between Griffith Swans and Charles Sturt University.
The two teams were due to play at Apex Park in Lake Albert tonight but a torrential downpour accompanied by an electrical storm forced that plan to be abandoned.
The game has been rescheduled for next Friday night.
"There's nothing wrong with a bit of rain for footy but with the lightning and thunder, the duty of care kicks in," AFL Southern NSW game development manager Marc Geppert said.
"Next Friday just gives everyone another week to get ready whereas if you postpone to tomorrow or Sunday, there's not enough turnaround time."
Minor premiers Griffith were making their way across to Wagga when the storms hit.
"We've got to make a call early enough because of Griffith travelling. We wouldn't want them to travel all the way across and call it off," Geppert said.
"Two hours out from the game, with thunder and lightning and torrential rain, we had to make a decision."
The Swans won the only meeting between the two teams this year but CSU are the reigning premiers and determined to avenge their only loss in the first two seasons of the AFL Southern NSW Women's competition.
