Centenary of Rugby LeaguePrint Page Print this page

A plaque commemorates the centenary of Rugby league. Renowned Test forward of the 1960s and West Wyalong’s favourite son Ron Crowe unveiled the first of almost 50 Centenary plaques commemorating NSW Country’s contribution to 100 years of Rugby League.

The Centenary Plaques program 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, NRL first-grade clubs, foundation clubs, former Premiership clubs, NSW and Queensland Country, and those sites which were host to the foundation of the game itself in Australia.

The plaque itself bears a prominent Centenary logo, the venue name, and a short paragraph of site-specific text on why the venue has been selected as a site of historical significance to Australian Rugby League.
