Eastwood Rugby will start a fresh chapter in the club’s history by moving away from TG Millner Field and setting up a new home 20 kilometres away in Castle Hill.
The Hills Shire Council gave the green light on Tuesday evening for a plan to upgrade the Fred Caterson Reserve in Castle Hill into a multi-sport precinct featuring an elite rugby complex and academy.
It will serve as Eastwood’s new training and playing base, with the club also looking to recruit the cream of the local talent.
The complex, which already boasts soccer, cricket, baseball, tennis and basketball facilities, will have three full-size rugby fields, one of which will be synthetic. Eastwood will play their home games there, likely from 2022.
