Centenary of Rugby LeaguePrint Page Print this page

A plaque commemorates the Centenary of Rugby League in Australia and the site of Rugby League in Toowoomba.

As Athletic Oval this venue was home to the legendary “Clydesdales”, the rugby league team which in 1924 and 1925 beat all comers, including England, New Zealand, New South Wales and South Sydney. It has been the home of rugby league in Toowoomba and the South West region since 1919.

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.
