Pitch inspection at 5pm

As things stand, the game goes ahead, but another inspection tomorrow morning. They’ve had portable heaters on the pitch as well as the undersoil heating.

Its not the pitch thats going to beat us up here being at the game. It's going to be the roads (M6 , M74 both closed tonight) and trains .

If we don't make it guys cheer the team on to a win and enjoy the game.

The only time I recollect the undersoil heating at Central Park not working is when people forgot to turn it on.

Why is it whinging if people choose not to go? Can’t force people to sit in the cold simple as that,for me I fail to see why it’s being played on a Friday surely this one was a prime game to be on a Sunday but that’s just me.

As for your original comment I’ll not criticise anyone for their choices in life it’s called free will.

Massively disagree with this. He's really blowing at the end of a 20 minute stint, and can occasionally struggle to get back into the defensive line/set at marker. Sutton or Flower are better options if you wanted a big back rower (which I can understand) because they are both more mobile and have better stamina. Betts would have him trying to shirt grab halves and centres all day if we stuck him in at second row. He would be gasping for air when we have the ball, never mind trampling over anyone.


big difference between being an athlete and being fit. His size, body type and frame shows how much of an athlete he is. I agree his fitness isn't where I'd want it to be (especially recently coming off a pre-season) but I still think he'd make a good hard running back rower. Additionally to this, the SR position requires a different type of fitness, hence why they spell props more regularly.

I think transport in the borough is ok.

I work near Widnes and got into work ok today, in fact it was better than normal.

Lets not worry about the M74...
Wellens 3/10 Like public transport. Late, slow and stunk

FIOS

I was due in Edinburgh on Tues for a 2 night stay, but for once took advice from the weather forecasts, i had booked to be back for the game so it worked out ok in the end. I have had updates from Virgin and no trains or replacement buses running yesterday or today.

Couldn't make the game (a real rarity for me!) as no one I go with would brave the weather. Thoughts on the game from those who went appreciated! Was surprised Navarette didn't get a crack after Wane's comments midweek, how did Sutton and Tautai get on?
