History[edit] The Tasmanian Rugby League
Tasmanian Rugby League
was founded at a meeting at Heathorn's Hotel, Hobart on 2 December 1953 and the first competition was held in 1954 with teams including Bellerive (Eastern suburbs), Taroona, Newtown and Canterbury. Players were initially recruited from Hobart Rugby Union teams and the first matches were played on 3 April 1954 at the South St Grounds, Bellerive. The first premiership was won by Taroona[1] [2] The first interstate match was played against Victoria on 12 June 1954 with Tasmania

winning 18-8.[3] By the mid 1990s the Tasmanian Rugby League

was running a statewide competition[4][unreliable source?] which included Six Hobart teams:

and three regional teams:

Launceston Clippers ( the Australian Maritime College) North-West Raiders (Based in Burnie) Smithton

also ran a Northern Tasmanian vs Southern Tasmanian competition during this period. Ben Mckinnon from the Launceston Clippers is the only player to have won the statewide best + fairest on two occasions both in his debut season in 1995 and then again in 1997. Due to dwindling player numbers the competition contracted to four Hobart teams during the early 2000s and midway through the 2003-04 season the senior amateur competition folded as a result of rising public liability insurance costs. In late 2009 a new senior competition was established through the efforts of local 7HO FM Radio Personality Jason 'Wolfie' Wolfgram (President 09/10), and in conjunction with ARL Rugby League Development Officer, Graham McNaney. The decision to re-establish the competition followed a public forum at the Hotel Grand Chancellor in Hobart on Thursday 25 June 2009. The revised summer competition initially included four teams:

Hobart Tigers; Northern Suburbs Cowboys (formerly named Broncos) Eastern Shore Thunder; and Southern Rabbitohs

Gala Days and Under 17s junior exhibition matches have also been a feature of the revised competition. In February 2012 a National Rugby League trial match between Brisbane Broncos

and Melbourne Storm

was held in Hobart. The Launceston Warriors were admitted to the competition during the 2012-13 season. A North West Titans team is due to join the competition in 2013-2014 representing North West Tasmania
