After years of waterlogged pitches and cancelled matches, Mumbles rugby club officials are now praying for rain.
The club has broken through several inches of compacted pitch soil and imported a load of soil from Parc y Scarlets, Llanelli.
They have added fertilizer and seeds and spread this across the pitch with the aim of improving the drainage.
The club members are keen, the reports states, to thank the Mumbles Community Council and the Welsh Rugby Union for their grants of £8,500 and £10,000 respectively.
