Seems rather ironic that the ground got lights given the oval's a mess and the visitors coaches box (that got moved into a couple of old corporate boxes in the Jarman stand) is a joke.

Surely those two things should've been addressed first before the luxury of lights.


You proffer a load of bullshit "Brucetiki". The ground got lights because it was a joint venture between the cricket club and the football club, a stand alone application would not have succeeded. The grants had to be a joint venture for lights not oval drainage. Drainage of the oval I would think would be a council responsibility.
For 32 years I have watched the Eagles play at Woodville Oval and have considered the surface to be one of the best of the local SANFL grounds. The three other matches were played on Saturday, but another one & half inches of rain had fallen by the time the Eagles and Panthers played on Sunday. BOM stats said that the first week of June had received the most amount of rain in 102 years, this just might have contributed to the boggy conditions, it would have been interesting see how the other ovals coped if their matches were played on the Sunday. Adelaide Oval excepted with their multi million dollar drainage system.

The opposition coaches box WAS NOT moved in to old corporate boxes. The old corporate boxes were completely gutted and removed and a brand new modern up to date coaches box was built with a magnificent view, it would be the envy of most other opposition coaches boxes at other grounds.
The move originally happened to separate the two teams coaching staff when COVID protocols were implemented.

Your propaganda and slurs are not worthy of this forum.

The Eagles didn't commence playing there until 1993, did they?

Played one game there in late '92.

AFAIK 1991 is the only season since 1963 that no league matches were played at Woodville.

Torrens would have played there most years between 1964 and 1990.

The oppo coaches boxes aren't in an ideal position but hardly a huge issue, they have done a good job with the lights.

I've been in the new opposition coaches box, it has a great uninterrupted view of the oval, a lot, lot better than what opp. coaches get at Noarlunga and Elizabeth. It's just not an issue.

Has this changed since the trial games earlier in the year Southee??
Champion Data were using what was the opposition coaches box and there was a scaffold with a coaches box on it to the left of the race.

As for the showers, it was mentioned by Jimmy Toumpas on the radio last night that plumbers were out investigating the issue yesterday.
I did wonder if the hot water ran out after the 2's players hit the showers and tried to avert their hypothermia, some very cold boys out there Sunday.
