Hybrid rugby pitches, the choice of champions

Our SISTurf artificial rugby pitch at Allianz Park in North London has played its part in Saracens achieving the status of double champions. The rugby pitch also plays host to American Football NFL teams, who use it for training ahead of matches at Wembley, and local rugby clubs and schools, making it a real asset both to the club and community.

Our choice of synthetic rugby pitches

  • SISTurf Scrummager – available in 60 and 65mm fibre lengths, using the FB Ultra HD fine fibrillated yarn creating a proven surface that balances durability & resilience making it a hardwearing rugby pitch  turf. To meet World Rugby standards, this surface will need to be laid onto a tested and approved pad. The SISTurf Scrummager is also tested to FIFA Quality Pro standards for football use.
  • SISTurf Rugger – available in 60 and 65mm fibre lengths, this is a proven surface that balances durability with resilience and a soft feel, making it a safe and popular rugby pitch turf.

THE DIFFERENCES IN HYBRID AND SYNTHETIC PITCHES FOR RUGBY

Hybrid natural turf pitches are particularly good for rugby as the surface supports scrums better than natural turf with the fibres preventing diviting and localised wear. The pitch is also firmer allowing a faster game of rugby.

On the other hand, synthetic turf allows for much more frequent use whilst providing a fast and stable surface for players of all abilities.

Synthetic rugby pitch construction

We manufacture and install our own pitch systems for rugby clubs. As well as Saracens, our Rugby Union clients include Newcastle Falcons, Rosslyn Park, Loughborough University and Durham University. We also installed Rugby League pitches at Leigh Sports Village, and are working within the Framework on several more rugby league pitch projects.

Rugby pitches, whether it be a synthetic, hybrid or natural pitch, are constructed in the same way as any other of these types of pitches. The only difference being that for rugby the grass should be left slightly longer than average.
