Our Team

The RKC is a group of statisticians and historians aiming to create and share a comprehensive record of Rugby League’s history. We are the official statistics provider to International Rugby League, the sport’s global governing body.

The history of rugby league as a separate form of rugby football goes back to 1895, when the Northern Rugby Football Union broke away from England’s established Rugby Football Union to administer its own separate competition.

Similar schisms occurred in Australia and New Zealand in 1907. Gradually the rugby played in these breakaway competitions evolved into a distinctly separate sport that took its name from the professional leagues that administered it.

All work in this archive is undertaken by members of the RKC on a voluntary basis.  Membership is available to everyone, with no obligation to contribute directly to the work, though any help is definitely appreciated.  Details of how to join can be found here.

We hope you find the information available on the site interesting and useful.  Should you wish to provide feedback, or have any questions, please contact Neil Ormston.
