Rugby pitch, Glynneath RFC
This is the pitch at Abernant Park, Glynneath, home ground of Glynneath Rugby Football Club.
The rules of the game state that distance along the crossbar between the posts is 5.6 metres. The crossbar's top edge is 3 metres (9 feet 10 inches) from the ground. This was formerly 10 feet, but I doubt that many clubs bothered to lower existing crossbars for the sake of 2 inches!
The minimum height of the goal posts is 3.4 metres, though in practice (as here) most posts extend skyward for many metres (no maximum height is specified).
