Lamport pitch renewal

Looks really concrete underneath. Hope the pitch doesn't lead to any injuries. I don't know much about the science behind artificial pitches tho!

Those matts they are laying down are made of rubber and absorb shock.  The new turf being laid is rated FIFA Level 2 which is the highest rating for turf.  It will hurt less than playing on grass.

Sounds good, let's hope it's all ready for June :D

I'm sitting next to Lamport right now and having a second look they are 95% complete. Still a bit of work to do around the outsides and they are putting all of the lines in. Would be great if they could paint out the non rugby lines for each match.

Went by just about lunchtime (by car so no pics) and its looking pretty much complete..gotta think that with a bit more hustle by the city/contractors it could have been completed for May 5 and a rocking 9000+ fans at Fortress Lamport would have blown the Swinton fans minds!!!

but who's complaining?? now we get to do it to all the London Bronco's fans on June 9.....

I'd like to pitch in and say it looks great.

Is the pitch 110% ready now? Absolutely nothing more to do?

Just read that the Argos will be practising there, might see some has marks added. I'm assuming they won't try to do both 10yd and 10m lines.

The 10m lines look great, definitely don't need any more. The Argos won't do any damage on this surface (like they do at BMO).
