Players raise concerns about artificial pitches

By International Rugby Players

International Rugby Players statement re: Artificial Pitches:

“We’ve seen a rise in the amount of nasty injuries from artificial pitches and we’ve raised the issue with World Rugby.

While the wearing of tights and leggings is now permitted, this is a short term fix but we need a long term solution.

We’ll continue to make sure these pitches are tested and monitored, or in the case of the surfaces that give recurring problems, replaced.”
