Centenary of Rugby LeaguePrint Page Print this page

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

Rugby League was first played in Dubbo in May, 1912. Since the establishment of the Group 11 competition in 1922, Victoria Park No. 1 Oval has hosted local grand finals and representative fixtures featuring district combinations and visiting international teams.

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.
