Federal Labor investment promised for the Gold Coast Titans

The Federal Opposition has announced they’ll back the Gold Coast Titans’ ‘rugby for all’ initiative, if they win the election this weekend.

A Shorten-Labor Government has pledged to invest $500,000 to help the Titans improve opportunities for women and people with a disability to play rugby league.

$100,000 would be spent on a bus, with disability and wheelchair access, to collect players from around the spread-out region and take them to training and games.


While the other $400,000 would be spent refurbishing the club’s high performance centre, to create more space to cater for coach education and fitness training by women players and players with a disability.

Gold Coast-based Senator Murray Watt says Federal Labor’s investment would back up the Titans’ efforts to open up rugby league for all.

“The Titans have done a great job, in opening up rugby league to everyone on the Gold Coast, no matter their background,” Senator Watt said.

“Rugby league is one of the Gold Coast’s most popular sports and it’s important everyone has the opportunity to get involved.

“Labor’s funding commitment will ensure women players and players with a disability get the respect they deserve,” Senator Watt said.

It is unfathomable to me when we have proposed a state of the sports Centre CAGE FOOTBALL / SOCCER, Streetrules football, with support from the Paralympic committee for the blind and sight impaired a recognized Paralympic sport yet we can get no response from the labour Candidate for Mc Pherson and the “oh that’s a state government matter” from the current LNP fed representative Karen Andrews, all just headline, rubbish when facility that will cost the Gov. Local Gov, State gov and Federal Gov not a cent cant even take the time to talk with us and come on site. My confidents in the governance of this country is at an all time low.
