SINCE the beginning of the summer era, a number of Super League, Championship and League One sides have undergone dramatic transformations in terms of their homes.
From the dilapidated old terraces to the proximity of supporters to the pitch, long gone are some of the most traditional venues in rugby league history, replaced with brand spanking new stadia.
Traipsing through the archives, it has been interesting to note the completely different eras from the past two decades and the movement to more modern times.
