On 29 August, 2020, the great game of Rugby League will be celebrating 125 years since its birth back in the late 19th century. The game owes plenty to those pioneering players and officials that made the historic decision in 1895 to break away from the English Rugby Union. We look back on how the game began and what changes were made as it moved away from Rugby Union. Read the whole story in the latest issue of Rugby League Review.


After the Second World War, Rugby League continued to grow with Manly and Parramatta joining the first grade competition to make it a 10-team premiership. With many of the district areas of Sydney also seeing a spike in player numbers, many were seeking a higher grade of football.

It would be re-named the Second Division the following year. Find out more in the latest issue of Rugby League Review.
