Centenary of Rugby LeaguePrint Page Print this page

The plaque commemorates the centenary of Rugby League and the historical significance of the site.

The first rugby league match in South Australia was staged in 1914 when a South Australian team played England. A district competition began in Adelaide in the 1970s and the Adelaide Rams competed at national premiership level in 1997 and 1998. Adelaide and Balmain played the first league match at this venue on 3 July 1998.

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.
