The NRL & Peter Vlandys completely missing the mark with the proposed standing on suburban grounds the heartland of community and the presence of the suburban warfare of rugby league
There is a distinct difference between the club's indicated that have a retrospective piece of community built into there DNA. Fans aren't asking for mini-mega stadiums that are devoid of character without a hill or local keepsake that makes their home ground feel so unique.. the recent conceptual development of Manly Sea Eagles home ground being right on the money! But the association and ownership of a team has to relate to the people within said community teams like nthqldcowboys SeaEagles PenrithPanthers have the unique advantages of stability in their location and community base.
The development of the game, leading fans back to the grandstand has to relate to the people within the local jurisdiction allowing that sense of ownership developing access to the club.
Our fans thrive on the passion that is built on the back of hard work and development to install rugby league as the greatest game on earth they deserve nothing less than the best when optioning that piece of turf that stands for so much more than a few bums on seats!
Create a future that represents what our game is all about!

As it stands what team plays out of Liverpool?
The NRL has missed the mark entirely, nothing will change by making multiple clubs play out of the same venue to ensure these grounds are adequately used based on funding..
There has to be a reflection on community and that's just not happening with the current plans.
With the current infrastructure spending to create jobs and focus on our economy the conversation has to be had to get the right amount of funding to do the right thing by these projects and get it done right instead of minor upgrades that do nothing for Rugby League
