Last Friday, two weeks out from the start of the Heartland Rugby Championship on Cooks, the first steps were taken to place the goalposts into the recently renovated ground.
Problem? No one could find the spot where the four post holes (metal canisters with a wooden cap, two at either end) were supposed to be.
The minor reorganisation of the ground undertaken, levelling and resowing etc, and the lack of a decent new ground map, meant guessing wasn't good enough.
It seems contractors Fulton Hogan called in one type of metal detector, which proved unsuccessful.
