League kicking around decision
By Lee Gaskin
THE format of this season's AFL Bundaberg/Wide Bay (AFLBWB) competition is still undecided following the league's meeting in Maryborough on Sunday.
The league's two most southern clubs, Gympie and Pomona, are keen to move to the Sunshine Coast to a proposed third division competition.
AFLBWB president Bob Fordham said there was still a lot of dust to settle before the move was finalised.
"The deadline is on February 3 - at the moment you know as much as I do," Fordham said.
"It's up to Maroochydore and Noosa coming up with a third side, so we have to see what they want to do."
If the move does go ahead, it would not be the first time, with Gympie having fielded a team in the Sunshine Coast league way back in the 1970s.
"It's logical for both Gympie and Pomona to play on the coast," Fordham said.
"The feeling among the clubs is that (Gympie and Pomona) are either with us 100% or with the Sunshine Coast."
Travel has always been an issue for Bundaberg Australian Football teams, with the current league taking in the Rum City, Hervey Bay, Maryborough, Gympie and Pomona.
