National Rugby League South Sydney Rabbitohs have turned their sights to a A$19M ($17.6M) "high-performance centre in Maroubra," according to Massoud & Suckling and of the Sydney DAILY TELEGRAPH. The Rabbitohs opened talks in June with Randwick Council, "which last week passed a 14-1 resolution to push ahead with plans to construct a multi-purpose facility and a new training oval at Heffron Park." Schoolboy league club Marcellin College "currently holds a lease over the proposed site and has shown an early willingness to sub-let part of the venue for South Sydney's exclusive use." The facility, which is expected to take three years to build, "would accommodate the club's entire operation -- including football, administration, charitable arms and merchandise." Federal government support "will be sought to fund the development, which Souths won't have to pay a cent to build." The Rabbitohs would then lease the facility from council (DAILY TELEGRAPH, 7/2).
