Will the NRL acknowledge the 125th anniversary of the birth of our game ?

NRL should in some way, but the predecessor, the Sydney or Brisbane competitions started in 1908.
In Australia it should be the ARLC celebrating it in some way

The NRL had only been around for ten years when they celebrated our 100th. They’re part of the game’s history no matter how recent. They should celebrate it in some way, you’d think.

I thought the NRL started in 1997 or 1998, It would be magnificent if the NRL, ARL, SL etc can celebrate the birth of the sport they represent.


Technically he's correct, so how is it stupid? There are many discrepancies in rugby league and he was simply pointing that out.
The header of the posts literally says "our game". He wasn't asking if the NRL was celebrating the start of the NRL.

History says otherwise :smiley:

Depends on your definition of rugby league

- 1873 play the ball invented with 4 tackles
- 1895 clubs breakaway but play RU
- 1906 13 aside game begins
- 1908 rugby league term born in Oz
- 1967 limited tackles
- 1996 English Super League born
- 1997 NRL born

Some may say rugby is still being played too in the north of England

The NRL was renamed but it is clearly the competition that began in 1908. And the comp that began in 1908 came from what happened in 1895.

History doesn't stop when circumstances change and people adapt. It is continuous.
