Centenary of Rugby LeaguePrint Page Print this page

A plaque commemorates the centenary of Rugby league and the site of Rugby League in Armidale.

Rugby league matches have been played here since 1931 and in its time as a premier league venue the ground has hosted international tour matches, including Northern Division against France (1951 and 1964) and Northern Division against New Zealand Maoris (1956).

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.
