SRU; Murrayfield gets new pitch for 2013/2014 season

Murrayfield gets new pitch for the next season. Taking the opportunity of no concerts this year the SRU have replaced the natural pitch at Murrayfield with a new sand based natural grass pitch. Early days yet but the pitch is billiard table flat and looks excellent. The pitch has had a new artificial turf run-off added to the west side to prevent wear and tear on the side line and new 27m posts. Roll on the autumn internationals; The hallowed turf!
