Messy pitch concerns Halfpenny

Press Releasein Rugby

Wales wing Leigh Halfpenny has hit out at the state of the Millennium Stadium pitch after the Welsh slipped to a 21st consecutive loss to New Zealand.

The playing surface, which is made up of imported grass pallets, cut up badly in the 19-12 defeat by the All Blacks.

A technical fault meant the stadium roof could not be closed earlier in the weeks when Cardiff suffered heavy rain.

"You could see after the game that it is a bit of a mess - and it has to be right, really," said Halfpenny.
