Cyclone rain postpones A-League game

Cyclone rain postpones A-League game

An A-League match between North Queensland Fury and the Newcastle Jets has been postponed because of heavy rain caused by a tropical cyclone in northern Australia.
Football Federation Australia officials said they met with representatives from both clubs and Dairy Farmers Stadium officials and decided to make an early call on the postponement about six hours before the scheduled start Saturday.
The weather bureau was predicting an extra 80 millimeters (3 inches) of rain could fall on the venue over the next 24 hours, following the approximately 200 millimeters (8 inches) that has already soaked the stadium in recent days.
The match will be rescheduled for a date to be decided.
