Spartans face tense wait for weather to clear

GRIDIRON: The Sunshine Coast Spartans face a tense wait this afternoon after wild storms interrupted its semi-final against Brisbane Rhinos at the Kawana Sports Precinct.

The game was called off at nil-all as gale-force winds and heavy rain lashed the region this afternoon.

Club president Leisa O'Donnell said officials would likely have until 6.45pm to make a decision about whether the game will go ahead.

According to some players, if the game is called off, the Sunshine Coast will lose on for-and-against.

"We certainly are (hopeful). We just need to ride out the storm,” O'Donnell said.

The Spartans surprised many to make the finals series after it finished third in the 10-team competition.

Women's and colts semi-finals were also due to be played this afternoon.
