It is supposedly a pipe that runs the length of the pitch with covers over the top and it is the pipe that has caused the stripe, as Mike B said it "burned" the grass where it lay on the pitch.

After the Widnes game was talking to
Stuart Cummings about general rugby stuff, and I commented on the state of our pitch. He said "you want to see Huddersfield's it is worse than Wigans". Apparently there isn't any grass on it at all!
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

That part of the pitch has always been dodgy when it comes to drainage and undersoil heating.

I had to turn the game off. Every time a goalie kicked the ball its showed him tear up the turf, every tackle had soil skipping up behind the player, it was torture!! Most of this was happening away from the big line down the centre too.
Don't forget we played in very wet weather too through the summer, perhaps not as bad as the last few weeks but still! We left a bowling green for them to play on!!! Its only 18 days to our first game at home!! :blush:

:angry:

The Wigan Observer carrys a huge article

Whelan says there is no more he can do and the problem is the drainage into the Douglas back filling during recent downpours.

Alas and why I get angry. Big interview with player Ryan Taylor, he lambasts the pitch and says it is the 2nd worst in the whole of the football league and then says the rugby guys start up in a fortnight and they will make it even worse IDIOT

:angry: I've said it before but even the groundsman at JJB says it is not the rugby that causes the most damage. It also states that Whelan said he "spent £100,000 having the pitch re-laid" two years ago!!! Some clubs have it re-laid two sometimes three times a year.

And what else would you expect from Ryan Taylor? he's a scouser!!! :angry:
