    Aren't they moving to the ground where we've played them pre season or has that all blown over?

    I hope not! Been there twice :)

    That seems more a training facility so hoping they stay at their proper home! Even just for one more season :)

    Not sure they have a 'proper' home as such, not since Somerton Park was bulldozed, anyway.

    The 'training facility' is their previous ground before they signed a deal for Rodney Parade, isn't it?

    CJ says Cheltenham is a dump, but always wanted to go there - no idea why!?

    The ground is. There's only one I dislike more in the 92.

    Spoke to a guy from there last night. He said they've got 7 years left on their agreement to play there. There was a possibility of a 4G pitch which is what would've caused the issue. That's been shelved by the WRU who have taken over RP and the Dragons so everything is ok for now.
