Centenary of Rugby League - Queanbeyan Leagues ClubPrint Page
The Centenary Plaques program 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, NRL first-grade clubs, foundation clubs, former Premiership clubs, NSW and Queensland Country, and those sites which were host to the foundation of the game itself in Australia.
The plaque itself bears a prominent Centenary logo, the venue name, and a short paragraph of site-specific text on why the venue has been selected as a site of historical significance to Australian Rugby League.

Queanbeyan Leagues Club
Rugby league has been played in the Queanbeyan district since the 1920s. This club was established in 1961 and began trading as a licenced club on September 27, 1963, becoming a major supporter of league in the district - and, from 1982, of the Canberra Raiders.
