Actually pretty neutral
They’ve moved the LED boards closer to the actual boundary, which means the ugly exposed concrete is visible. Looks pretty awful.

Are they doing works at the ground? Not sure why this change would’ve been made.
They've taken out the front 5 rows or so of "temporary" seating which is placed over the dirt track used during the Easter Show. So the led boards are in about their usual place, just without a few rows of seats directly behind them. This is SOP for GWS games right before/after Easter.

Should they start getting near-capacity crowds it'll be interesting to see if this is handled differently.

the ugly exposed concrete is behind the front rows of seating, removed at showtime to give the holden precision driving team more room to rip up the turf - oh and the cows - they need room too.

when the show is over and the turf re-laid, that seating will go back in and you won't see the concrete wall.
