MOURA does not have a senior rugby league team, so when Jack Wright heard the council was going to install lights on the league rather than the rugby union field, he was a little bewildered.
"The town has two very successful rugby union teams," Mr Wright, who coaches the Drovers A-grade side, said.
"We train twice a week and play at home almost every second weekend on our field. But they are talking about lighting the neighbouring league field and not our union field.
"I don't understand it."
But Banana Shire acting Mayor and long-term Moura councillor Maureen Clancy said Mr Wright was mistaken and the whispers circulating around town were incorrect.
"Council has not made any decision about lighting one field instead of the other," Cr Clancy said.
"We would like to light both fields and if we do, we hope to upgrade the lights on both fields at the same time.
"But money will be a big factor. Any lighting upgrade would hinge on the council securing funding."
She said there had been talk about the Queensland Reds investing in a country club and if the Drovers were lucky enough to secure funding from the Reds or from Queensland Rugby Union, the project would proceed more quickly.
Cr Clancy said designs and project costing would be presented to the council in the next financial year, when the council would decide the best way forward.
