Orange CYMS president Dave Penny has said his club hasn't locked in a make-up date for the Group 10 clash with Mudgee after the game was cancelled on Sunday due to icy conditions, however the clash won't be until after the side's derby with Orange Hawks.
Penny said the focus for the club was winning the derby, and he didn't want players coming into Sunday's clash at Wade Park injured or knocked around from a potential Wednesday night game against the Dragons.
"We want to focus on winning the derby, we want to everything to give ourselves the best advantage in that clash," he said.
The clash is still certain to be played, and while Penny said it would "probably" be a Wednesday clash, "nothing's been locked in at this stage".
Any mid-week clash would be a late afternoon or evening game, with a possible 5pm or 6pm kick-off time and playing under lights, with players' work commitments a factor - especially for those travelling from Mudgee.
There's no suggestion the clash could be canned and points split, with the match crucial for both the third-placed Dragons and for CYMS, who currently sit one point behind fifth-placed Cowra.
Lower grades and under-18s would be unlikely to play, while a potential decision on league tag would be left up to players and coaches.
