The beleaguered O’Farrell Cup will undergo a facelift over winter, but officials aren’t sure of the changes.
One of the longest-running competitions in NSW cricket, the 94-year-old league has been embarrassed by a string of forfeits to Riverina powerhouse and Cup holders, Cricket Albury-Wodonga.
“It has to change, but it’s how we go about it,” Wagga District Cricket Association operations manager Mel Rosengren said.
“I don’t know whether we make it into pools.”
Leeton, Cootamundra, West Wyalong and Young all pulled out this season in a competition where you would rarely see a forfeit a decade.
CAW returned this season after a 13-year break and Rosengren was asked if its power was killing the competition.
“I don’t think so, I don’t think it’s a major issue here, like anybody I think competition is good,” she said.
CAW hosts Wagga on February 24.
