Thread: scenic rugby field?

  1. #1

    Default scenic rugby field?

    hihi, anyone out there know of any good rugby fields in singapore (in schools, public, whatever) that have scenic backgrounds?

    ok, doesnt have to be wonderfully scenic but a break from the ubiquitous blocky buildings in the background would be nice. could be trees and stuff, but as long as there are no such distractions, please let me know!

    thank you!

    p/s: i'm not really very interested in the playability of the field. so far i've thought of the acjc field but the background has the awning-ed walkway and the sajc field but theres the canal and the highway behind.

    yeah, i thought of that. but one end of the field is the hockey complex and the other faces the road. do you remember if the other end's trees are quite dense?
    the nursery's on the left of the field, if youre facing the hockey pitch.

    darn. i would love to take some photos with the try line and goal, but no crappy background.

    farrer road? saint andrews artifical turf? temasek poly artificial turf?.... i think the turf city one is the best of the lot... but u have to walk a long way in to get to it.... very big open area that might suit your description.

    Yes. You might want to watch your footwear though.

    There is a field, but as to whether there are rugby posts, I cannot remember. Sorry, afraid I can't help you there.

    Some Sundays, you might find lots of kids having their little league football practice, if I recall.

    Old Police Academy? I find the academy buildings built low, and the very nice Pierce (Central Catchment) hills rising up behind.

    yeah but if i take somebody standing in front of the building i can still see the buildings.

    anw, problem solved! went to check out the turf club rugby field yesterday and although its quite inaccessible, the background to the field is gorgeous.

    thanks all for your kind and wonderful suggestions!
