Look out for flying boaters when driving down Moggill Road next week Old Boys.

We usually don’t report on all things GPS but this has a very special Ashgrove connection.

BBC’s one and only First XV Rugby title came in 1954 – but had to be shared 4 ways. Looking to secure that elusive outright title, the brains trust over Toowong way played a master stroke by bringing in an Ashgrove man as the overall Director of Rugby – OB Steve Meehan (1983).

Just as OB Dean Patterson (1981) had done for Terrace in their darkest days, Steve worked his magic to help bring that coveted GPS Crown to BBC in his very first year. The 66 year wait is finally over. And undefeated – just to add some icing to that premiership cake. 

Congratulations to Steve and to our OB BBC Colleagues on this incredible and wonderful achievement. One to absolutely savour.
