GM, I think it is relevant. Who would listen to the opinion of a man who thinks it’s funny to do what he did whilst playing for England. An absolute plank.

To be balanced on this, I recall a few players such as Ed Slater stating on various Podcasts how much they hated the original grass covered, stodgy bog that Castle Grim could be pre hybrid.

I have never heard any player saying how much they love playing at the Rec in winter!

Unless its Twickers or Franklins Gardens then players will always have a grievance with the surface.

Excellent, the more opposition that don't like our surface the better...
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

I suggest that if you haven't already that you read Marler's book, including the section on this incident.

Back to the pitch, based purely on that one game I thought it played a lot better than other 3G pitches and I am a massive sceptic of them!
