North Wales v Hunslet (Challenge Cup 4th round) to be played at Caldy RUFC on the Wirral in The General Rugby League Forum Posted February 21 22 hours ago, daz39 said: Surely there's a free sports venue somewhere in the North of Wales? it's a fairly big place is it not? There are now several football grounds in North Wales which would comfortably be up to league 1 standard, if only their artificial pitches complied with rugby standards. I believe there is an agreement in England between the FA, RFU and RFL for all artificial pitches to be of a standard acceptable for all three codes, unfortunately this does not appear to be the case in Wales, so artificial soccer pitches are not laid with rugby in mind. I am certain that every effort has been made to find a venue in North Wales, before finding somewhere that is at least not too far over the border. So far, we have had nothing but good news about Eirias Park, but there is always a catch or disadvantage to be found somewhere, and we have stumbled across it this week with the stadium being unavailable. I think I'm right in saying this will be our seventh ground used for competitive home games in the last ten years.
