On the test shown in the above video, with the weather forecast due to improve was the ref hasty and could have given it another hour? I’ve seen games played where the ball “ran” a hell of a lot worse than that. Although it held up a little or rather “aquaplaned” a bit , the ball continued to roll at the end of that bit of film.

The photo on page 13 was tweeted out at 2:06. The game was off by then. Obviously they were taken down when the game was called off.

I would guess the ground staff after the ref called the game off removed the posts Image

That seems to have happened at Spytty the year we were readmitted to the Welsh Cup when we played a tie against Barry Town which by some accounts should never have started let alone finished. .


Well, at least at Rodney Parade the club won't be at the mercy of the council renting out the pitch for midweek floodlit matches which definitely shouldn't have been played. I hired Newport Stadium for a Carlsberg Pub Cup game in the mid-90s. The pitch was a quagmire when we got there, it was chucking it down before, during and after, but if we didn't play it that night we'd both have been knocked out due to a match deadline.

Quick word with the ref who found a semi-dry patch to bounce a ball on and away we went. Pitch was an absolute state when we finished, how AFC played on it 2½ days later I have no idea, but at least the council made (about) £120...

Think there was a womens friendly rugby international down RP last year at the very worst time when games were being postponed or abandoned but they still went ahead and wrecked it a bit more.

Never mind the tree - what the hell is George Graham doing there?

Perhaps that's why the drainage is BUNGED up.
