John Eales Tribute Statue

  • Location: Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane
  • Year of Build: 2019

In May 2018 our Director Liam Hardy was named as the sculptor that would immortalise the great Rugby legend John Eales in Bronze…

Just nine months later on February 25th 2019 Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk helped unveiled the statue for the former Australia and Queensland Reds captain.  Weighing over 300kg and standing at 3.2 meters tall, the statue depicts Eales being lifted at a line out enabling fans to pose underneath with arms raised, as though lifting him. The largest of four statues Liam has created in recent years for Suncorp Stadium, it marks the beginning of Rugby Unions sporting tributes at the Southern end of the Stadium.
