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?

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.

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.
