Telegraph suggesting NRL stadium upgrade policy to be announced soon. Monies to go to Penrith, Brookvale, Leichhardt, Shark Park and retractable roof on stadium Aust.
Shitty Kogarah oval completely shut out (intentionally??) - another nail in the Dragons coffin. We get smaller while the others grow larger.

Shark Park is priveately owned. Doesn't make sense

With Mark Speakman (State Attorney General) and Scomo the State and Federal members for Cronulla respectively you would have to be naive to think there wasn't a bit of pork barrelling for Shark Park going on. Chris Minns however is the State Opposition Leader and Member for Kogarah so in March 2023 (the next State election) that could all change.

Waratahs would not play there as it's not their demographic,

Alistair the qualitative derivatives analyst from Mac Bank isn't going to haul his cookies in the Range Rover Evoque all the way down the Princes Highway, no freeway entrance pops up there plus getting road dust on the tyres is unacceptable.

Unfortunately it seems that the government believes that Kogarah just is not worth spending money on .

So I got a vague message from Craig Young... "Victory!".

Anyone got any other details?

I watched this video again, talk about amateur hour. You can't find a mic?

I wonder if there is any appetite to name other parts of the ground?
‘The Immortals Hill’ perhaps to go with the plaques around the ground/precinct?

Is anyone watching the women's cricket ODI work cup, India v Australia at Eden Park? Beautiful. That is the type of stadium we should be aiming for, just a rectangle not an oval, and 30,000 not 50,000 capacity.

I know you've all had a bad day, but it is news, and I am but the messenger. Please shoot to miss.
Please note, this is an SMH article, not a Slothfield bit of tripe.






Sharks Stadium in line for windfall​

The NSW State Government is close to finalising its strategy regarding the NRL’s suburban grounds investment.

While Penrith has been confirmed and Manly tipped to get another cash injection for Brookvale Oval, momentum is gathering for Cronulla’s privately-owned stadium to get a significant makeover.
Funds were originally put aside for a major renovation at Jubilee Oval. The Sharks can thank the Dragons, who showed little interest in playing more than half of their games at Kogarah each year given their ties to the South Coast.

Not going to happen and whilst Greene was after it the 40mill price tag was flipped off by the Government with "what , for 6 games a year ? "
