Warriors manager Stephen Swift says that will be a massive move forward for the club as the current playing surface isn’t up to scratch.

He told the Herald: “It is one that I have been in the directors’ ears about since day one.

“If you want to go and play, it is a bit bobbly and that was something that went against us at times, and I know that sounds picky.

“For me, it will make a difference to the way we play, passing out the back and playing through the lines.

“If you want to play at tempo, a good surface really helps, and I am delighted about it, to be honest.

“We need to make sure we achieve our goals next year because the board have certainly backed me and my team.

“It’s something I’m just really excited about and it will benefit us long-term.”
