Qld Premier Rugby 2022

Parking at Sylvan Road is a nightmare on any playing day let alone a finals. GPS not much better. Trust the clubs will have a "plan" to appease the locals, the police, players and spectators alike!! Prelims @ Bond Uni - seriously?

I mean parking at Ballymore isn't ideal either. And parking within 2km of Suncorp is literally non-existent for the Grand Final weekend. That's just life.

None of these clubs are really setup to host massive days, but what is the other option? Drop a rugby field on top of Indooroopilly Shopping Centre and use their carpark?

I can just imagine the committee making these decisions. Probably full of marketing & events people who have no idea on logistics like parking, let alone the playing.

Imagine your Colts 2 team play at Crosby (aka Dettol Park) on Saturday in a game to make the GF and then half of them are asked to go down the M1 on Sunday as their "recovery" to bench for the Colts 1 team.

Brothers have a club bye this weekend, hopefully giving the fields another dose of whatever they need.

I heard today the staph ward has increased to a dozen confirmed players across the club, with a handful more who can’t be bothered getting treatment (foolish). Might not sound like many, but honestly one is too many.

You mean the clubs? That's ultimately who make these decisions.

Mac Grealy named on the wing in UQ team.
Nick Jooste at 15.

Heenan is smart.
Probably more telling is TJ Siakisini named at 12.

Jake Pappin is going to very busy defensively, hope he gets a good night’s sleep. Not sure I would knowing what is coming at me tomorrow!

The games at Bond are quite perplexing.

I understand they want to share the love, but geez a knockout finals round where majority of the teams playing will likely be coming from the Northside of Brisbane.

The hour and thirty minute drive home after a loss will be a solemn affair no doubt!
Shit mate; I played a few season in regional Queensland where an hour and thirty minute bus trip would be a short weekend. Even then the Bus trips home were the best part of the journey, even after a loss.

Less whinging Re venues and more solutions folks. I’d like to think the powers that be keep an eye on GNG but who knows they are probably dining at James Street footed by junior rugby.

I wonder how long the Zander at tight head experiment will last, he doesn't look at all comfortable there and I'm not sure it's getting any better. At this stage I'll be surprised if UQ keep it up into the finals.
