Encyclopedia > Brisbane Rugby League premiership

The Brisbane Rugby League (BRL) premiership was a rugby league competition held in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia from 1909 to 1997. Until the 1980s it was the premier sporting competition in Brisbane, attracting large crowds and broad media coverage. The BRL then declined as large numbers of its players left to compete in the more lucrative New South Wales Rugby League premiership, and began to lose popular interest with the creation of the Brisbane Broncos in 1988. The Queensland Cup replaced the BRL premiership in 1998. Rugby league football is a full-contact team sport played by two teams of thirteen on a rectangular grass field. ...

History

Establishment of the Queensland Rugby League

The Queensland Rugby League was formed in 1908 by seven rugby union players who were dissatisfied with the administration of the Queensland Rugby Union (QRU). The new organisation was attacked by both the local press and the QRU for introducing professionalism, which they claimed would destroy the sport. The "founding fathers" of the QRL included John Fihelly, an Australian Labor Party Member of Parliament who became Minister for Railways and Deputy Premier.

Schism: establishment of the Brisbane Rugby League

In 1922 the Brisbane Rugby Football League (BRFL, later BRL) was formed out of dissatisfaction with the way the QRFL ran the game. Those involved took particular exception to the salary being earned by Harry Sunderland as secretary of the QRL. The BRFL took control of the local competition. Competing in the BRFL competition that year were Brothers, Carltons, Coorparoo, University, Valley and Grammars. Although the QRL attempted to regain control of the BRL competition in 1923 and 1924, the BRL remained steadfast and the dispute simmered into the next decade. During this time the QRL continued to hold its own Brisbane competition. Year 1922 (MCMXXII) was a common year starting on Sunday (link will display full calendar). ... 1923 (MCMXXIII) was a common year starting on Monday (link will display the full calendar). ... 1924 (MCMXXIV) was a leap year starting on Tuesday (link will display the full calendar). ...


Until 1932 the Brisbane Exhibition Ground was the home of rugby league in the city. The complicated arrangement between the BRL, QRL and Royal National Association (who administered the Exhibition Ground) led to the The Gabba being used for rugby league matches. Year 1932 (MCMXXXII) was a leap year starting on Friday (the link will take you to a full 1932 calendar). ... The Brisbane Exhibition Ground is a sporting stadium in Brisbane, Australia which is owned and operated by the Royal National Agricultural and Industrial Association of Queensland (RNA). ... The Brisbane Cricket Ground is a major sports stadium in the Queensland capital of Brisbane. ...


In 1933 district football was introduced to provide community support and player equalisation. This meant that players had to live within a certain distance of their club. Accordingly Brisbane was divided into Eastern Suburbs (incorporating Cooparoo and Wynnum), Southern Suburbs (incorporating Carltons), Western Suburbs, Northern Suburbs (incorporating Grammers), Fortitude Valley and Past Brothers (whose players had to prove that they had attended a Christian Brothers school). In 1934 University returned to rugby union. 1933 (MCMXXXIII) was a common year starting on Sunday. ... For the Queensland Premier Rugby club, see Easts Tigers Rugby Union. ...

The dispute was finally ended in 1953 when the BRL and QRL administrations were finally united. Former BRL chairman and QRL secretary Ron McAullife secured the use of Lang Park as a permanent home for rugby league in Queensland. Teams that joined the BRL competition around this time were South Coast (1952-1955), Wynnum-Manly (1952) and Redcliffe (1955). 1953 (MCMLIII) was a common year starting on Thursday. ...

Decline

In 1967 the QRL removed the residential qualifications for player in BRL clubs, meaning that players did not have to reside in their certain suburbs to play for their teams. This reduced community support for teams, and club decisions began to be made on a more commercial basis. 1967 (MCMLXVII) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar (the link is to a full 1967 calendar). ...


This coincided with the commencement of television broadcasts of BRL games in the same year. The money made from jersey sponsorships and advertising hoardings at grounds was not able to compete with poker machine money available to clubs in the New South Wales Rugby League, and an increasing number of players left the BRL. This also affected the popularity of the Bulimba Cup which had been held between the cities of Brisbane, Ipswich and Toowoomba since the 1930s. The New South Wales Rugby League (NSWRL) is the governing body for the sport of rugby league in New South Wales. ... The Bulimba Cup was a representative rugby league competition held between Brisbane, Ipswich and Toowoomba. ...


The effect of television coverage on attendances became pronounced by the mid-1970s and crowds began to desert the BRL competition. Clubs found themselves in financial hardship, and the public began to support the Sydney competition which by then was being broadcast in Queensland. The old NSWRL Logo The New South Wales Rugby League premiership was a major rugby league competition run mostly in New South Wales, but later in other parts of the country between 1908 and 1994. ...


The QRL commissioned Eric White Associates to investigate the administrative structure of the game in Queensland in 1977. One of the recommendations was the creation of a state-wide competition. The Winfield State League was created in 1982. The State League competition ran in parallel to the BRL competition from 1982 to 1995. The Queensland Cup (rugby league competition) would eventually replace both it and the BRL competition in the 1990s.

In 1985 the New South Wales Rugby League decided to allow a team from Brisbane to enter the Sydney competition. The Brisbane Broncos debuted in the NSWRL in 1988. As the Broncos began to represent Brisbane at rugby league in the public eye the BRL competition entered the terminal phase of its decline. 1985 (MCMLXXXV) was a common year starting on Tuesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Quotes

  • "Well that is a tragedy, to be honest with you. There's no club identity at all now. If you don't follow the Broncos well who do you follow? That means you've got to follow a New South Wales side. I think I'm sure that's what McAuliffe didn't want to happen. But when they brought in the Queensland side into the NRL that was the end of the BRL, as far as that was concerned. It should never have happened because as it turned out, if we did lose players from Queensland to go to New South Wales we had the State of Origin. We've been winning the State of Origin, and you can imagine if we were keeping our players, the club competition would be just as good as what it was when I was playing. But that is a tragedy as far as I'm concerned is that the people miss that club identity." -Barry Muir on the decline of the BRL and the rise of the New South Wales Rugby League premiership.
  • "Yeah well the crowd was great, they supported you wholeheartedly, they came along but it wasn't only down here on the football field it was on the streets up there. People would come up and talk to you, they'd stop you in the street and get your autograph and have a talk to you and wish you all the best and really support you in what you were doing and lifting the Club. There was four or five players here that were top-line footballers and we used to go up on the terrace and sell raffles in front of McCarthy's Jewellers store on the terrace and we'd do an hour there and then pop down to the Manly Hotel and do an hour there and then we'd pop down to Fishers (pub) and do an hour there. The players were prepared to do it because they were getting the support from this area and they would give it back on the playing field and however they could meet the people on the streets. I don't think anyone turned away from you, it was just one big happy family. We used to have like a barbecue after the game and there'd be 100 or 200 people that would turn up for the barbecue, we had it at various areas." -Lionel Morgan on the support of the BRL in the Wynnum-Manly district.
