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

On March 21, 1908, this park was the site of a trial match between South Sydney Possibles and Probables, the first game in Australia played under rugby league rules. On that day, Englishman Tom McCabe lectured players and officials on the finer
points of the new code.
