LCRU Strategic Plan 2005


  • Executive Summary:

  • Logan City Rugby Club commenced operations in 1982 when a small group of local people decided that there was a need to provide Rugby opportunities for junior players. We first entered senior teams into the suburban competition in 1990. In 1998 our senior side won the suburban premiership. This success was reinforced by our Colts side which won their Premiership in the same year. Our seniors repeated their success in 1999. Since then we have continued to strive for improved competition.

  • Since its inception our junior club has enjoyed year on year growth and now consists of more than 200 players. In 2001 our junior club was awarded the BJRU Presidents’ Trophy (best Junior Club in the Brisbane Competition). We repeated this feat in 2003 when the club was also awarded the QJRU Presidents’ Award (Best Junior Club in Queensland).

  • The club harbours a strong desire to play rugby at the highest level of available competition whilst retaining its family oriented culture. We are working closely with Logan City Council to continue to improve the quality of our playing facilities thus becoming more attractive to prospective players and their families and fulfilling the requirements for entry to Premier level Rugby.

  • The club is in a strong financial position as a result of the focus on running Logan Rugby along sound business principles. Off field our development plans include provision of additional off road parking and further ground improvements at Homestead Park whilst also discussing the development of a completely new rugby facility in Logan City.

  • Logan City Rugby has been recognised within the Logan community for the quality of the service that it provides to children and adults in providing suitable conditions to play competitive sport in a friendly atmosphere.

  • Logan City Rugby Club is situated at Homestead Park, Jodie Street, Shailer Park (just off Lyndale Street).

Conclusions organisations

  • Logan City Rugby Union Club is situated in one of the fastest population growth areas in Australia

  • Logan City Rugby Union Club has been active in creating growth in rugby union at a junior level, at schools and at a senior level

  • An appropriate transition from those numbers to Under 19 Colts and Open Grades does not occur

  • A significant reason is that the many Logan City players seek higher level competition and therefore the better players transfer to nearby Brisbane clubs. (This affects junior and senior clubs).

  • Participation in Premier Rugby will provide Logan City players with the competitiveness they are seeking

  • Logan City has previously been identified by QRU as the “jewel in the crown” of recruitment opportunities

  • Logan City creates a sensible ‘bridge’ between Gold Coast and City based clubs and at the same time staves off advances by Soccer, AFL and NRL

  • Most sponsors provide small “courtesy” amounts and prefer to benefit clubs where the sponsor has a local business or presence

  • Many larger sponsors have indicated a willingness to contribute when the Logan City can provide an appropriate exposure for the sponsor

  • Logan City players want to play Premier Rugby through a home based team

  • Logan City sponsors want a higher profile partner through Premier Rugby

  • Logan City Council is already discussing improved facilities for Rugby; a higher profile would speed up the process

  • Logan City Rugby should no longer be impeded at Senior level by not expanding its horizons through Premier Rugby

  • Logan City Rugby must provide the pathway its players are demanding

  • Logan City Rugby must enter Premier Rugby for the good of the Code

  • Logan Rugby should be encouraged by QRU to continue its growth by admission into Premier ranks.
