Pitch Saturday

Recommended Posts

Be amazed if the pitch isn't currently waterlogged but the worst of the rain is seemingly over now. Suppose its a case of if it remains waterlogged come 1/2 pm or it drains away. 

If your a rugby fan you want a game and obviously we dont, ultimately the decision falls on the referee as the winds not high enough for a cancellation on h&s grounds.

There is no solution. The rugby lot can't go anywhere else because nobody would want a free loading bunch of parasites on their ground and I cannot see our fan base being happy ground sharing with Bradford City (Huddersfield already share with the rugby).

Neither club can afford to build a new ground without major outside investment and that doesn't look like it's going to happen so we just have to accept that and complain to the council when the pitch is unfit for use ( or even with hold rent until it is fit for use) as they are the landlords.

I don't fully disagree (and you are being pragmatic) but if we take that approach nothing will ever happen and we won't progress as a club. It's clearly affected us on previous seasons, but now we have an half decent team/manager it's potentially going to hold us back. Hence all our concerns here.

There is nothing we can do about this situation this season, except sit back and see how it unfolds. You never know, we may get the hottest springtime in history accompanied by promotion, but I'm not feeling it.

the only solution is to rip the pitch up and lay a brand new synthetic type like the terriers and fartown have , but again it’s the cost

Id rather not watch us play Dewsbury in these conditions if I am honest. It will be a poor spectacle(insert obvious jokes) and we would probably do better against them on dryer ground.

The Thrum Hall Supermarket Car Park is drying up nicely for you

Wouldn't rip up the pitch, I'd build a new drainage system and pitch on the current pitch

You have got your wish, at least somebody connected with rugby has a few brain cells.:doh:

Would have thought common sense would day after 2.storms that leaving the pitch for a week would bring goodwill( old fashioned ) all round and assist both teams in the long run. 

Joined up conversations? 

The long and short of it is that it isn't down to a common sense decision as per the other threads. What could hamper one team could help another and vice versa its just the way it is. Our coach obviously would have prefered to get this game out of the way as our already cluttered schedule just got harder now but it is what it is and the fact that it could affect our chances of getting back in to Super League is just something we will have to worry about later.

It was from a spectator point of view more than thinking of the longterm effect it could have on our season.

Surely if you throw in a few Wednesday night fixtures in the summer months its problem solved?

7 1/2 months to play 27? league games seems more tgan enough, even with cup games amongst.
