Steven Powell

Match: Barbarians v Argentina, Saturday 21/11/15

Published: 1/12/2015

 

Deeply, deeply disappointing. The "wheelchair spaces" are slightly below the level of the pitch. The "wheelchair spaces" consist of yellow lines painted on the floor. No seats have been removed which means a) companions/enablers are seated slightly to the rear of the wheelchair user they're accompanying, making conversation difficult and b) the companions/enablers would be unacceptably squashed in the event of all sell-out crowd.

 

The view is horrible and obstructed by LED advertising boards (the near touch-line is completely obscured), the assistant referee, water carriers/physios and a three-person camera crew. The "crown" of the pitch means that the far touchline is obstructed too. The gate stewards are inattentive and more interested in chatting with each other than opening the gate for access and egress. No attention has been paid to wheelchair users at the various refreshment points.

 

The whole experience was deeply, deeply disappointing. The RFU should hang its head in shame.
