It's like a bowling green at the moment but when the football season starts and it gets scuffed up, the commentators will say well they do play rugby on it. And I love Wigan Athletic as well as being a season ticket holder at the Warriors. I have also watched the Latics there as well but it is annoying when they say this.

There's a joke in there somewhere about the amount of Sh#t the turf gets it should be in tip top condition, but i can't remember it!

Chatty It was because it was built on a sewage works. The smell that used to come off that in the Summer when we were little was horendous.

To be honest if you are a gardener or groundsman you love the rain and the limited sun at this time of the year, and for farrie and mswigan it's known as the growing season!

No bloody wonder it looks nice,it,s just like my garden

It's a stone cold certainty it won't look like that on christmas day and it doesn't matter who the hells playing on it,Warriors ,Latics, Dick Kerrs ladies,or the Brighouse and Rastrick band marching,in winter grounds are crap!

Chatty We used to call it the sewrage pad and besides that there was Gallagher's bone works, and in the Summer the smell used to travel all the way up Montrose Avenue. But we got used to it. Happy days.

The only ground in the country where the football pundits make a make a reference to Wigan Warriors playing on it.

Long may the free publicity continue.
