It will be nice to finally have a COE and training facility that the club of our ilk deserves.
I think we have been 5 years behind where we should be.
Took too long to get the ball rolling before inevitable delays with these projects happened.
Penrith had there one up and running in mid 2010s.
The fact the Tigers got one completed before us is a bit embarrassing imo as well.
But it’s nice to finally get there. And hopefully is another springboard to help get us sustained success.
I’ve been to the Tigers one at Concord Oval, and drove past it again today.
It’s f**king tiny compared to what the Eels are building. Our one is a much bigger undertaking and built from scratch, whereas they had a lot of the infrastructure there already.
No point comparing us to them, in more ways than just this one.
