The Pitch Changing Size?

    I distinctly remember that when I first started playing the 10 metre and 22 metre were referred to as the 10 yard and 22 yard. Was this just a colloquial thing or did it change at some point? Meaning the pitch is now bigger than it used to be. Or maybe I've blurred my thoughts and it used to be 20 yard line, and got changed to 22 metres when they upgraded to metric, they just couldn't be bothered to change the 10 to 11.

    It used to be the 25 yard line.
