While the forecast does not look promising for the return of cricket, players are faced with the prospect of three straight weeks on the sideline.
Diggers captain Theo Valeri is one who knows the pain of sitting on the sideline more than most over the last two seasons.
Having had his time with the Wodonga Raiders cut short due to COVID restrictions, and now his return as captain of Diggers has been at the hands of the weather gods.
"I think I have only played eight or nine games over the last two years," he said.
"It's been unbelievable, really, but what can you do."
In the unlikely event that there is a chance of cricket this weekend, Diggers will be taking on Coro, which will see opening batter Dean Bennett take on his old side for the first time.
Valeri is hoping that a tough game against the Cougars could see his side starting to come together.
"It had to come around sooner or later, and he is pretty experienced, so I think he (Bennett) will handle himself just fine," he said.
"As a team as a whole, we have a good team on paper, but unless we can sort of gel and click on the field, it never usually works."
Diggers have only taken to the field once so far this season, and the outlook doesn't look like it will improve the ratio for the side.
"I think if we don't get on this week, I think we play next week and then have the bye after that, so we could have only actually played two games in the opening two months of the season," he said.
"They reckon 80mm for this week, and then even looking ahead for the whole summer, it is meant to be wet."
The topic of covers has been a hot topic of discussion in recent weeks, and it looks like the Griffith and District Cricket Association are set to make changes to help lessen the impacts of wet weekends.
Currently, covers are only allowed to be used for finals games as it stands, however, this rule looks set to change and would be welcomed by the Diggers captain.
"They (covers) are doing nothing at the moment, so we might as well use them," he said.
"I think it is a good idea, and the association is all over it."
