This game marked the first game for the league following the bye-week. The Hornets would be without both their regular starting quarterback, Jordan Gallienne and their starting centre, Luke Pattimore. The Terrapins would be looking to capitalise on this advantage and close the gap at the top of the league.
A delayed week 4 match-up between the Terrapins and Reapers was moved from the North Field this week due to the local festival “the Gathering” taking place there, so La Mare Playing fields was the temporary site for this warm Thursday evening game.
For the Razorbacks, it was their third game in five days and for the Hornets, their second in four as the catch-up of the schedule rolled into the first scheduled game for Week 4.
Week 4 also marks the first time teams replayed each other, making it the first opportunity for teams to take what they learnt from the first meeting and adjust. The previous meeting between these two teams ended in a victory for the Hornets, 35 – 6.
Heavy rain had forced this re-scheduled week 2 game to eventually be played between games for week 3 and 4. Having suffered a signiifcant loss to the Terrapins the previous day, the Razorbacks would be looking to turn their fortune around, while the Hornets would be seeking to continue their run of good form.
This game marked the first game that the Razorbacks would play in a series of three games over the course of five days, as the recent weather issues to the scheduling forced teams into playing catchup on the season schedule.
A wet and drizzly Sunday morning saw Reapers take on Hornets in this Week 3 matchup.
