Centenary of Rugby LeaguePrint Page Print this page

A plaque commemorates the centenary of Rugby League and the historical significance of the site.

Eastern Suburbs Junior RLFC’s players trained at a number of locations, including nearby Langlands Park, Tristrams Park and Hawthorne Park, Thompson Estate at Stones Corner and Bottomley Park at Coorparoo, before the senior club signed a lease for Scott Park in the late 1960s. Easts’ juniors played their first matches here in 1971.

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.
