Over budget apparently. Major issues with the estimated initial costs. My guess it will be re designed and re tendered unless more funding is made available.

Only a year late but good to see that the work has started on Ruislip. What is the story with county finals etc this year, I know money is been given to TCG does this mean the main pitch will have a fence, barrier round it?

I had thought I had read somewhere that London Irish might be hosting the county finals for this year only but I could be wrong on that.

True enough. Unless we get another PR organisational disaster like this year's Mayo clash.

Replying To MedwayIrish:  "True enough. Unless we get another PR organisational disaster like this year's Mayo clash."
Sure half that come out for the Connacht game don't even watch the game. Will you be allowed your bottle of Magners in the stand like you used on the grass bank??

I believe it was an old wooden ship used in the colonial times
