Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

RUGBY LEAGUE: The Mun­dub­bera Tigers have wel­comed their new em­blem on the dress­ing sheds in Archer Park ahead of the In­trust Su­per Cup this week­end.

Mun­dub­bera Tigers life mem­ber Gavin Ford said the North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil’s fund­ing al­lowed the club to have some work done on the shed.

“The dress­ing sheds have re­cently been re­fur­bished un­der a grant that we got, all the cu­bi­cles have been done up, the grant also pro­vided fund­ing for the fence post on the other side of the field to se­cure the grounds which helped get the In­trust Su­per Cup to our re­gion,” Ford said.

“The orig­i­nal dress­ing shed was built by the Mun­dub­bera Rugby League Club 20 years ago and through our Archer Park meet­ings, we’ve sug­gested the idea of hav­ing a sign on the front of the dress­ing sheds for some time.”

The club has an­other plan in the pipe­line that should take place at the end of the year.

“There will also be an­other sign that will go up on the build­ing say­ing what sports are on in the town and their con­tact num­bers for those peo­ple, this is some­thing that we thought would recog­nise Mun­dub­bera as a rugby league town,” Ford said.

In or­der to re­ceive the In­trust Su­per Cup in your re­gion, it was im­por­tant that the club had se­cured grounds.

“The club asked me to ne­go­ti­ate with Phil Robin­son that did the sig­nage and Phil gave us a look at what we wanted to do and the club de­cided to go big­ger and it turned out well,” Ford said.

“We’re all very im­pressed with what he did and I think it looks great, it rep­re­sents the club well and should high­light our club to the rest of the re­gion.”

Mun­dub­bera Tigers pres­i­dent Cameron MacDon­ald didn’t have any idea it was go­ing to take place be­fore the big game got started.

“It took me by sur­prise but I re­ally like it, the club has done a great job,” he said.
