How does it compare to other teams infrastructure?
There are some pretty impressive facilities being developed, if you read the article... some are spending a lot more cash... probably in part as they have more government support. $19m was on the low end, but some include grandstands and more fields. The Eels are going to have four fields and a stand for their junior grade home ground, for example. The Raiders already own West Belconnen as well, of course, which can be used for that. The Sea Eagles are getting a new stand at the northern end of Brookvale with high performance facility built in. The Roosters are spending just $12m, but I think that integrates into the new SFS.

These are the spends:

Wests Tigers ($30 million), Canberra ($19 million), Cronulla ($23 million), Parramatta ($40 million), Manly ($33 million), South Sydney ($25 million), Sydney Roosters ($12 million), North Queensland ($40 million), St George Illawarra ($30 million)

That cowboys stadium looks good and maybe a design we could copy for Canberra. GE - was the cost (cows) comparable to the Eels stadium?

Cost was initially estimated at $250 million, blown out to something closer to $300 million. Latest official estimate I could see was $290 million.

I’d want four sides on a stadium myself.

So that big gap at one end is intentional? I thought it was just incomplete.

Yes, apparently it is intended to let the breeze blow in from the waters. And a supposed nod to the old “hills”.

Green Machine gets back to grassroots

The Canberra Raiders have put their staff and families to work laying the turf at their new centre of excellence on Tuesday. Raiders chief executive Don Furner and coach Ricky Stuart both put in shifts to covering the 17,000 square metres of grass. It will be finished Friday and take about six to eight weeks to be ready for use. Furner said they would officially open the centre on March 6 at their 2020 season launch.
