Does anyone else share my concern as to the quality of the pitch at Lionel Road. It does seem incredible, however, even at the start of a match it appears boggy, slow, and slippery. Impressions of footprints can clearly be seen on the surface even early in the game. I do not believe that Rugby has been played on it so far, but, I dread to think what the condition will be in after such a game. We may well have had an enormous amount of rain recently, however, the drainage must be of a very high standard. We have in this short time already had a couple of players injured in the warm up which although not unknown is not that common. Could it also be contributing to our apparent slow play.
