75 Years of Rugby League in the West
In 1947 in Western Australia the seeds were being sown for the birth of a rugby league competition in this state. Many people were seeing rugby league as a brand new and exciting brand of sport and confidence was growing.
The first competition game was played on the 17th of April, 1948 at 12:15pm. It was played between the Perth and Fremantle Clubs, with Perth taking the win 25-17.
Rugby league was the big winner and the rest is history, as we now celebrate 75 years of the greatest game of all in the West. What better way to celebrate this special anniversary than with a packed crowd at Optus Stadium for Game Two of the 2022 Ampol State of Origin series!
