Centenary of Rugby LeaguePrint 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.

Centenary of Rugby League
This Site is recognised as being of great significance
in the history of Rugby League
Engadine's rugby league history dates back to inter-district
matches in the 1930s. The Anzac Oval grounds were
developed in the 1960s largely through the efforts of officials
from Cronulla-Sutherland's most progressive junior
clubs, the Engadine Dragons. The inaugural Tommy Bishop
Shield was staged here in 1971.
