Centenary of Rugby LeaguePrint Page Print this page

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

From 1959 until it was closed in 2007 to make way for a new football complex, Wagga Wagga’s primary rugby league venue was Eric Weissel Oval, named after the champion five-eighth from between the Wars. The ground hosted many major matches, including an Australia v Papua New Guinea Test in 1988.

Note: The oval has been earmarked for development and the Leagues Club Building will be demolished. The location of the plaque is unknown.
