​Every month or so we will give a short update on the status of the Rugby League Record Keepers' Club (RKC) work, including any changes to this site.

Our work broadly follows five distinct phases: 1) collation of data in electronic form; 2) initial validation of this data; 3) loading the data into the database; 4) confirmation of the accuracy of the data; 5) cross-referencing of players playing for different clubs.

The initial focus is on member clubs of the Northern Union / Rugby Football League, and will then move to amateur clubs playing first-grade games, and representative teams.
