Great Britain'S Olympians are to be allowed to return to their clubs from next weekend, but the move, announced yesterday, will bring little consolation to teams forced to struggle through this weekend's double-headed fixtures.

Cannock are likely to be without internationals Chris Mayer and Paul Edwards, plus their three Olympians, when they entertain the League leaders, Teddington, today, followed by a visit to Loughborough Students in a third-round cup tie tomorrow. Mayer and Edwards both suffered hamstring injuries last weekend.Jason Laslett and Danny Haydon will be absent for Teddington.

Guildford will be without their player-coach, Ian Jennings, who is in hospital withmeningitis, as well as the Olympians Danny Hall and Guy Fordham, for their local derby against Surbiton in today's League fixture and against non-League Old Cranleighans in the Cup tomorrow. Old Cranleighans, with several former internationals in their ranks, could well spring an upset.

Loughborough Students visit Southgate in the League today, before the home side entertain the First Division leaders, Hampstead and Westminster, in the Cup tomorrow.

The bad weather has forced Women's Premier leaders Fyffes Leicester to switch their game against Olton and West Warwick to the National Stadium at Milton Keynes.
