    They dont like to admit too early as time can be clawed back easilly. I heard the sparks were having trouble and that they have been told the handover is 70 odd days away but that they wont be finished. Also i have heard from someone high up on the site that says the same. There have been a few other people on here who are working on site who have said the same.

    I agree with a lot what you say, but surely it is in our interests to know if the stadium is to be fully enclosed or 3/4 to be left 'open' partially to the elements. We were initially told it would be enclosed, the initial computer-generated picture of the stadium interior shows it as fully enclosed. Many people on here seem to have spoken to construction workers etc directly involved with the build and are relaying info re completion dates etc to us, but I find it strange that no-one has either asked or been told if the stadium will be enclosed.

    What evidence have you to suggest that it won't be enclosed?

    n.b. the 2012 season ticket brochure has new stadium FAQs and stats, including the exact capacities of each stand.

    And... The big screen is in the NE corner.

    I don't have any evidence - if I did, I wouldn't need to make this post. However, many mentions of the possibility of three sides being left semi-open are made in discussions in 'Stadium Watch 5'

    can you honestly see them leaving breeze block walls exposed to the elements? , or that they woluld seriously consider leaving the crowd with less shelter than at KR, ? get a grip fellas, it will be enclosed, if you look at the pictures of the back of the north stand the liftshaft and stairs have supports already for the cladding, it wont need much support for a single skin cladding to be attached. the Saints media manager said it would be enclosed, Mr McManus said we are going for a quality build, leaving three sides open is real quality isnt it!?

    Does the ground revolve? Looks like the north stand is going to be repositioned to run along Peasley Cross Lane for the start of next season

    ANd the point I'm making is quite simple too so I'll spell it out...

    Does this mean that the game the club were trying to get organised for boxing day (probably with Widnes) is now out of contention because the internal fit out will not be complete?

    I don't expect an 'official' answer. I did think that someone with inside info might drop a broad easy to grasp hint that either - they're still hoping to get something together or it probably it wont now be possible.

    Can you tell me if the north, east, west stands and the NE and NW corners will be fully cladded/enclosed behind the stands as is the south stand?

    Saints Webmaster - Planning permission has been granted for the North Stand to be fully cladded (with a small gap at the top) - it has had to be reconfigured due to wind resistance etc. I will find out about the other stands.
    .....................

    I wonder how "small" the gap is at the top of the North stand? It looks like the standing population might be a bit more open to the elements!

    Previous post has updated my comments below - obviously been some developments re original plans

    Have posted this previously, but the latest viewable plans of the elevation views of the East & West & North & South clearly show that the current build is pretty much identical to those plans i.e. its open. Whether this is the most accurate and the longer term position remains to be seen.

    Breeze block is due to be cladded; cladding around north stand stairwell & lift was always on the plans (designated as red flat metal panel - it does shows this to the left of the stairwell (x1) but think this is a typo and should refer to the edging around the entrance/exit gate).

    No, they're re-routing Peasley Cross Lane...

    Almost every modern stadium has a gap of some kind between the roof and the stands.

    Shame we don't have someone with inside info.

    My outside info tells me that Saints know they have to run H&S games but none have been planned, or will be planned, until the stadium build is complete and the keys handed over.

    Hence the Boxing Day game never being on the cards - it was never more than rumour, speculation and "it'd be nice if we could but we won't know if we can do it until the build is complete".

    But hey, feel free to take rumours as gospel and then rip my head off - I'm guessing that high horse you're on is bucking?

    I have been reading the stadium watch, and seen all the roumers so i decided to ask St helens fb page, they responded very quickly. :-Official St.Helens RLFC "It is on schedule. Don't listen to the rumours. We will get handover at the end of October and then we will continue with the fit out."

    I though what does fit out mean? so i asked if the outer cladding will be finished and the fans seats in place, to which they responded with
    "The cladding is expected to go up the North Stand, but I'm not sure about the West and East just yet - will get back to you. The seats will be in when we take 'delivery' of the stadium".

    That was the answer given when Saints staff were asked. There has to be a gap but it won't be the current 2-3 mtrs & planning permission is being sought to close part of the gap. They responded by giving the Emirates & the Stretford End at OT as examples of this. However, the South Stand has been constructed with a slightly different corkscrew design in the corners to counteract the effects of wind blowing in.
