Centenary of Rugby LeaguePrint Page
Resco Park was awarded a Centenary plaque in a tribute from the Australian Rugby League to Singleton’s – and indeed Group 21’s - proud Rugby League history.
Rugby League started in Singleton in 1920 when a local team entered the Hunter District competition. In 1990 the Singleton Greyhounds Rugby League Football Club were awarded the Clayton Cup as the most successful club in New South Wales Country Rugby League.
The Centenary Plaques Programme was put in place by the Centenary of Rugby League Committee to commemorate sites of historical significance to Rugby League - such as stadiums, suburban grounds and club formation sites. Nearly every aspect of Australia’s Rugby League landscape is covered by a Centenary Plaque – with plaques dedicated to the commemoration of Indigenous Rugby League, National Rugby League (NRL) first-grade clubs, foundation clubs, former Premiership clubs, New South Wales and Queensland Country, and those sites which were host to the foundation of the game itself in Australia.
