Ground suitability for the Premiership

Hi all

Apologies if this has been asked and answered elsewhere, but is it known if all (or some) of the teams in the playoffs meet the ground requirements for getting promoted?

Obvs we and Carnegie do, but not having visited Doncaster or Ealing I'm not familiar with their grounds.

Reading the text feeds it sounds like Bris could be relegated today with a loss. But I always take those sorts of comments with a certain pinch of salt If there's still a chance of a team coming through the playoffs who cannot (or don't wish to) be considered for promotion.

Cheers,

Og

Of the play off teams I believe it is only Ealing's ground that doesn't comply.

..unless Ealing have already nominated/agreed an alternative, qualifying stadium of course...

Don't think Donny's ground is suitable either! They would use nearby football stadium i believe.

Yep, pretty sure Donny had the football stadium nominated last year as Castle Park capacity isn't large enough

Providing Donny go up, they will move to the Keepmoat Stadium (capacity 10,000) for the start of the season whilst castle park is being renovated.

I was at Doncaster game yesterday. I was very impressed with the facilities: excellent bar, good food outlet, good mainstand, surrounded by 4-6 rugby pitches & lots of space for expansion.
Like all championship teams this year the club was very welcoming .
PS. Our scrum was awesome.

They have an option on a place in Brentford.
