Watching Worcester vs Bristol.
Is the pitch artificial?
Is the ground shared with a football team, as you can see soccer pitch markings?

Yes, itís an artificial pitch at Sixways installed about 4 years ago. The previous pitch wasnít up to much and I recall Wayne Barnes calling off a match a few minutes before kick off because one corner was waterlogged and then frozen. The new pitch claims to be technically more advanced than the one at Allianz Park but I know that opinions are still mixed about the the impact of artificial surfaces on players. Iím hoping that the hybrid pitch weíll have at Brentford will be the best of all worlds.

Worcester Raiders will be ground sharing with the Warriors but rugby has primacy of tenure, a reverse of the situation we had at the Madejski.

Worcester Raiders sounds like an ice hockey team

Which match was that? The football team that is owned by the warriors. Bosses is in the tenth tier of the football system.

I forget which match it was as we werenít involved, but it was on TV so my afternoon on the sofa was ruined...
