    Great for Edinburgh to finally have a suitable home ground.

    Hmmm, then is the intention for big games to move to big Murrayfield?

    Temporary seating bringing it up to ~15k might be a good move. Rather a packed bouncing small stadium than an echo chamber.

    That stadium rendition looks great. Being of Scottish ancestry I hope to be sitting in one of those seats someday. [​IMG]

    Ugh.

    Can they not get a hybrid grass pitch and use UV lights to keep it during winter? Bound to be better than that plastic crap (which is fine... for 5-a-side or training).

    This cannot come soon enough. It's putting me off going to a 5% full Murrayfield. Great from the SRU to have smelt the coffee and do what fans have been thinking was the only viable solution. Plus the SRU have done well enough financially to be able to make this commitment.
