The two light poles at the centre of the legal stoush

As Mathoura Football Netball Club fights to host this year's Picola District Football Netball League north west grand final , the Riverine Herald will deliver the news as it happens at Melbourne Magistrates Court.

The club and league have been at loggerheads for more than a month after the league refused to allow Mathoura to host the grand final, as two light poles at the netball court were deemed too close to the playing surface.

After several meetings and discussions, the league opted to move the grand final to Yarroweyah and Mathoura, with the support of Murray Shire, sought a court injunction to keep the final in Mathoura

The Riv will tweet updates from its @riverineherald account live from the court, starting at 9.30am, using #polesapart

The outcome will also feature on and reactions from all parties will appear in Friday's print edition.
