I come bearing good news – the rain that has been present in Sydney during yesterday and today, should almost completely ease in time for the matches in Sydney on Saturday night, following a most likely wet game in Newcastle at 3pm.

Note: Times listed in tables are local. Dragons vs Tigers is being played at the SCG.

Friday 6pm: While it may still be fine at the start of the match in Auckland, some rain areas are expected to move across later in the match.

Saturday 3pm: Showers are expected to continue into the early to mid afternoon in Newcastle tomorrow, even though they will ease to some degree further south around Sydney.

Cheers Serc. I was in Newcastle today and it was torrential for much of the day. Even if it’s not raining the ground could still be very wet tomorrow afternoon.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
