The Queensland Rugby Club has offered to assist with the initial pool opening, with the club’s secretary Peter Tinkler stating they would be donating a small amount of money.
“They’ve got a pool to put in there so we’re not worried about that,” he said.
“The Queensland government will be providing all sorts of assistance and advice and so far they’ve been very welcoming.”

Obviously we’re all very much in need of help and we’re looking to be able to provide that,” Mr Tinkley said.”[It’s] just a matter that we’re going to have to look at the pool first and see if we can get a little bit more help from our partners and help out with our local councils.
