Aussies to
inspect Ericsson Stadium size

The ARL will measure the dimensions of Ericsson Stadium this afternoon to see if the field meets international specifications ahead of tomorrow night's Tri-Nations rugby league Test between Australia and New Zealand.

The Australians are concerned the Kiwis will reduce the width of the field and length of the in-goals in a bid to curb the Kangaroos attacking game as they did in a Test last year. ARL chief executive Geoff Carr on Tuesday sent a fax to the game's governing body in New Zealand detailing his concerns, but had not yet had a firm reply as to what they intended to do with the field's dimensions.

If they are not acceptable Carr will consider getting the International Rugby League Federation to intervene.
