Rain, rain and more rain: this winter is wreaking havoc with the junior winter sports draw. It's been a wash-out for junior soccer, netball and rugby.

In Wellington, five of the last six scheduled games have been cancelled.

In Auckland, up to five weeks of games have been cancelled.

However, most games have gone ahead in Waikato..

In Canterbury, rugby officials describe this as one of the wettest seasons in years.
