The Ovens and Murray has raised the prospect of by-passing the rest of the regular season and moving straight into finals as COVID fears rise over this weekend's matches.
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews announced on Monday the State's five-day lockdown won't end, as planned, at 11.59pm on Tuesday and while a decision is expected Tuesday on how long it will extend, it's difficult to see community football returning on Saturday, given the cases still in Melbourne.
Last weekend's round 13 was scrapped due to COVID.
"We will consult with clubs before we make any decisions," O and M chairperson David Sinclair offered.
"The alternatives are to continue cancelling rounds and it may get to a point that we may have to go straight into the finals series, if we see a pause of another four to five weeks.
"Let's hope that does not happen."
