ARL 2008 Centenary Use PILA’s Rugby League Goal Posts
On Wednesday 8 August 2007 Australian Rugby League commenced their Centenary celebrations and PILA was proud to supply rugby league goal posts for this special occasion.
The ARL required a fast yet professional solution to get the goals to the site, install and remove them without damaging the ground at the event location at Fox Studios in Sydney.
The event organiser required the rugby league goal posts to be standing for 3 days while the re-enactment of the first game of rugby league was performed and filmed in front of a crowd of league legends and dignitaries that included Johnny Raper, Reg Gasnier, Norm Provin, Ken Arthurson, Rex Mossop, Gordon Tallis, Mario Fenech and NRL CEO David Gallop
The ARL chose PILA’s 9m rugby league goal posts with their unique ground screw base system for their lightweight design and ease of installation and removal. The goals were then assembled on site and easily stood by 2 men with no need for tools or machinery, preventing damage to the site surface. Along with no machinery needed for installation the unique ground screw system leaves no visible damage to the ground after removal of the goals, perfect for event sites.
PILA’s rugby league goal posts goals are manufactured in accordance with Australian and European Standards and have been designed for everyday use and comply with the appropriate safety and sports competition standards.
