Parramatta Advertiser commemorative cover - 100 Years of School Boy Rugby League -
A schools Rugby League competition began in Sydney on 20 May, 1914, with matches being played at the Domain and Metters Sportsground, Erskineville. Nine schools took part including Parramatta Marist and Saint Mary's Cathedral. 100 years later to the day this event was commemorated with a game being held between Parramatta Marist and St Mary's Cathedral at Erskineville Oval which is adjacent to where the old Metters Sportsground once existed.
The result was Parramatta Marist winning against Cathedral, 18-4. Also two of the boys donated their commemorative jerseys for framing as part of the School's history. Here are some images from that historic day.
