Hi,

According to the RLWC website, the World Cup final will be played at Old Trafford, Manchester United's stadium.  However, I have a question.  Rugby League's field is 68m*116m.  But Old Trafford's pitch is 68m*105m.  Does Old Trafford have enough space for 116m?

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

The pitch dimensions are just a guideline, there is a minimum and a maximum allowed but not all fields are exactly the same size. The Super League Grand Final is played at Old Trafford every year.

Judges should at all times ensure that corner posts are correctly positioned.

3. The goal posts are considered to extend indefinitely upwards. It is recommended that the bottom two metres of each upright be padded.
Amercian Football shaped goal posts are permissible provided the relevant dimensions are observed.

4. For adult games the dimensions should be as near maximum as possible to the dimensions stipulated.

5. The broken lines in the PLAN shall consist of marks or dots on the ground not more than 2 metres apart. All transverse lines must be marked across the full width of the field.

O, I was thinking that the rule about the length of ingoal had been changed from 6m-11m to 8m.  Was I misinformed?

And are the height of goal posts 16m?  I think that goal should have 2 bars--3m and 16m, because balls higher than goal posts are difficult to judge.
