Wanganui Vet Services Marist will take the rare opportunity to play a full weekend club fixture, with the start of their Coastal Challenge two-day semi-final in Masterton delayed until December 18.
The second round of the inaugural red-ball tournament was originally due to begin tomorrow, with day 2 of each game being December 18.
However, rather than make the long trip to Masterton twice in a fortnight, Marist will instead play Wairarapa's United CC over the December 18-19 weekend.
Cricket Wanganui will assist the team so they can stay in Masterton on the Saturday night.
