Centenary of Rugby LeaguePrint Page
A plaque commemorates the centenary of Rugby League and the historical significance of the site.
Rugby League has been played in Oberon since 1917 and the Oberon Tigers are acknowledged as one of the most successful clubs in the New South Wales Country Group 10 competition. The Tigers played in 11 consecutive grand finals between 1961 and 1971, winning 10 of them.
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.
