Neither are classy as a name for our new facilities imo..

...if we want to be taken seriously up there in a Rugby state, lets go with a good solid name.

..just don't think a Superman, Disney World/Land etc name would cut it somehow.

Talking to one of my work mates and said they have a D12 dozer working out there.Capable of pushing around 12 m3 each push it would average around a full push every 3 minutes.So moving around 2500 m3 of dirt a day.A truck and dog trailer holds 20 m3.Just thought this might be of interest

Tell your mate to get a bloody move on, I want it ready for the 2019 off season.

Get the Dean Brothers in.

Hi all. Just a quick snap I took of the ground broken for construction of The Reserve out at Springfield. The photo was taken from the platform at Springfield Central Station, which will service the ground.

(Mods feel free to move if this is not the best place for this).
Thanks heaps Dynamics, I've been wondering how this is going, fantastic to see.

I hope that creek there doesn't flood, I assume it doesn't as that was one of the reasons given for not seriously considering Coorparoo or Yeronga as our new base.

No worries!

We had a nice little storm a few days ago, with some hail, that filled everything up nicely. Prior to that I imagine the water level in the photo would have been much lower.
