Warriors ask for Facilities to grace Premiership
Having been promoted to the Rugby Union Premiership at the start of the 2004/05 season, Worcester Warriors decided that their training facilities also required moving up a division.
"The coaching staff and players were complaining that the previous surface was too hard" commented Mike Robins, Operations Director of Worcester Warriors. Mr Robins continued "It was then that we decided to opt for the rubber filled artificial surface from Active Leisure Contracts. We looked at all of the options on the market and selected Poligras Premium MT65 as being the best".
The existing fibre sand product was removed from the indoor training facility and was replaced by Premium MT65 which was laid over a pre-fabricated shockpad. The indoor facility will be used by the 1st team squad for training, including line-out and scrum practice.
Poligras MT is a specialised product developed primarily for Rugby. It uses slide friendly 'monotape' technology, combined with a unique polyurethane backing and is laid over a sock absorbing foam underlay.
The product has also been chosen by London Wasps as well as the Hong Kong Football club, venue for the International Rugby 10's. It was this pitch that was tested for compliance with the International Rugby Board's draft Regulation 22 standard, which it was proved to have met.
