    Tomorrow’s Worriers game has been called off because of the adverse weather today. Got to say I am not overly upset because the pitch on Saturday would have been a quagmire.

    I must admit I was worried when I saw the bit on the news when the warriors won the two country club challenge. It was very muddy in the try area, which I guess is our 6 yard and corner areas.

    I guess we will see tomorrow

    FA Cup Winners 2013, sounds good that

    The in-goal area is behind the football goals. The try line is basically the dead ball line. They always end up crappy because the groundsman doesn’t work on them in the football season and you get people using that area to warm up. On the pic below you can see the D under the lads leg.

    The pitch problem isn’t going to go away, we have the same problem and the same discussion at this time every year. It isn’t down to the rugby they have only played a couple of games on it, although two or three games a week doesn’t help, its just a bad pitch. No doubt in a couple of weeks it will be relayed again. so whats the solution? The rugby arn’t going to go away, so having watched the sutton, arsenal game on monday and the rugby fixture being played at widnes what about having a 3g pitch a la sutton and widnes. Technology has come a long way since the shite so called plastic pitches of the 80’s and the one at sutton on monday looked quite good. You never know it might even suit our tippy tappy style. No more playing on a quogmire during the winter, no more having it relayed and wasting money every year, and no more arguing the toss with the rugby lot. Just a thought, what do you recon?

    Gentlemen the damage is done over the summer months. With rest and maintenance in the summer the surface would be superb throughout the winter and even less pitch renovation work would be needed in the spring.

    Playing two friendlies in two days against Man Utd & Liverpool wouldn’t have helped then.

    That’s when the season begins and it is very rare that Latics play home premium season friendlies.

    We should have played Southport instead for the sake of the pitch.

    They could even have brought some spare sand with them B)

    Seems obvious to me that the 2 clubs need to get together and agree a plan to spend some time and money and sort out the pitch once and for all, instead of following a false economy and keep spending smaller amounts of money for a short term fix.

    Also, although plenty (myself included) have a had a good laugh at them having to call tonight’s game off, we’ve had to move a game to a Thursday night to accommodate their GF fixture. Seems that unless requests are being ignored by FL & RFL, its beyond the 2 clubs to request away fixtures on weekends the other club is at home. This is particularly the case with both last and this Easter, where Wigan would play St Helens on Good Friday and then if they would be at home on Easter Monday. Unless things changed dramatically in RL, Wigan v Saints GF 2017, could have been predicted 20 years ago, yet both clubs have had home games on the same day in 2016 and 17 over Easter.

    Whether we, as fans like it or not, we share the stadium…pitch is a massive aspect of that, yet Wigan Athletic & Wigan RLFC can’t seem to work together to sort it properly
