    From Eddie Griffths:

    "There are some issues with the Wembley pitch and football but those issues pre-dated rugby coming here," he said. Does anyone at Wembley hold rugby responsible for the state of the pitch in any way? No they don't. I'm very confident that Wembley can stage more than just a few football matches every year. It would be totally ridiculous if Wembley could stage only 10 football matches in a year. It clearly can do more than that and we look forward to coming back next season.



    "Blaming rugby for the state of the pitch is a complete red herring. We're thrilled with Wembley, the playing surface has been perfect, though I know that's not a fashionable thing to say. The pitch situation has become a witch-hunt against the stadium but we feel the pitch is fantastic."

    If they think it's fantastic they want their heads examining.

    Ask Matt Dunning was he happy with Wembley pitch?

    Top soil is not the only problem is the soil is underneath the top soil is the problem. They can spend money on laying a new pitch all the time but its what underneath is the problem not on top.
