The Macleay Valley Cricket Association and Premier League Cricket competitions were forced to abandon the weekend’s games due to the deteriorating conditions.
Fires to the west of Kempsey forced the cancellation of local junior and senior cricket.
In the first grade competition, competition leaders Nulla were scheduled to do battle with Stuarts Point/Eungai while South West Rocks were to take on Rovers.
Meanwhile the local fires and the blazes near Port Macquarie and Taree forced the Premier League round to be cancelled.
Rovers were scheduled to face off with Taree West in South Kempsey. The match was ruled a draw.
Rovers will take on the Port Macquarie Pirates in round five this Saturday.
Rovers are currently sitting in fourth position with one win and a loss from their two matches.
