An independent inspection of Bankwest Stadium today has deemed the surface safe for Round 7 matches to continue as scheduled.
NRL Head of Football Graham Annesley said player safety is always paramount.
“The independent analysis during today’s inspection showed the surface is stable and all testing is within the normal ranges,” Mr Annesley said.
“It concluded that the ground was in ‘surprisingly good condition’ and falls ‘within all measured criteria’. It also found that the ‘surface levels and stability are still very good’.”
The Rugby League Players Association (RLPA) attended this morning’s inspection.
“We had a representative attend the independent inspection of the Bankwest Stadium this morning,” RLPA Chief Executive Officer, Clint Newton added.
“The views of the independent turf consultant, and the thorough process that has been undertaken, provide us with a level of comfort ahead of tonight’s fixture at the ground.”
