Rain delayed the start of the game on the first day until 11.15am
The rain returned 35 minutes after lunch on the first day and meant no further play was possible
Rain prevented any play on the second day and the wet outfield meant play was an hour late starting on the third day
Nelson City retained the Newman Shield
