Plaque commemorates the centenary of Rugby League and the historical significance of the site.

Organised rugby league was first played at Crookwell in 1920, when a four-team competition kicked off on June 5. League was first played at this venue in 1927. The ‘Chook Shed’, a small but noisy shelter when filled with home-town ‘Greens’ supporters, was built at this venue during the Great Depression.
