Thread: Gore Hill - ACL grave yard?

  1. #13
    I sneaked a look last week during a visit to the hospital - it looked a bit uneven to me - crimped perhaps.

    Has anyone else noticed that or was I just high on hospital gasses ?

    And how do they secure the playing surface to the soil underneath ?

    Not crimped, ripplied et etc. It'd be the most even surface in Sydney.

    At some stage this year we'll have one of those weeks when there's several days of rain in a row and there's mass ground closures across Sydney. That's when we'll really see the benefit.

    East Coast Eagles played at Gore Hill last week. Can they give feedback on the Ground.
    Any thing to report or any Injuries on the day out of the games

    I thought you were there last week clubman?

    Ive heard various reports, some positive some negative.

    Positives: Better than Original Gore Hill. Wont get rained out. Concussions down.

    Negatives: Burns from players above average than normal. Ankles injuries. Knee Injuries. After effect with aching muscles and joint.

    Nothing compares to a ideal grass track, the impacts for clubs is one game a season however the true test will be how North Shore will feel after a full season on there. Will it impact them come the end of season.

    First go there for me today. Agree with the post above. Better than old gore hill, worse than a grass field.

    Asked one of their players "well it's better than mud". Lots of skin taken off, few ankle injuries and the ball definitely bounces different on it.

    East Coast had 3 Prems Players with Ankle injuries - 2 required surgery
    1 player had concussion - Missed 2 weeks
    Lots and Lots of Skin taken off – most got infected - and all treated after game.
    See what happens next year as Clubs do have a Duty of Care for there players.

    worst thing about this forum is the amount of ambiguous comments ending with an ellipsis implying that everyone should know what you're talking about
