Rugby League Project is the number one website when it comes to Rugby League statistics and historical data. It is possibly the most important Rugby League website in the world!
The Rugby League Project site is run on a voluntary basis by Shawn Dollin, Andrew Ferguson and Bill Bates. The immense amount of work needed to fulfill the sites goals requires full time work, and that is where you can help out!
By donating to the Rugby League Project Patreon Page you can help this process!
The Rugby League Project team is currently working on…
*Adding in team line ups, missing crowd figures, halftime scores and captains for all NSWRL games from 1942-1976
*Adding in results, scorers and line-ups for all BRL/QRL/State Cup/Bulimba Cup games from 1910 til 1987.
*Adding in details for all minor competitions in NSW (since WWII) and QLD.
*Finding and updating details on International fixtures that are currently blank records on the site (ie – we only have the teams, scoreline and the date).
Will soon be added to the site
*Results of tour games by all Test nations since 1908.
*Results of all Championship and League 1 games in the UK from 2002 til 2018
Next on the agenda
*Adding in every Professional and Semi-Professional club game in the UK since 1895-96. Andrew has been working with UK historians and will soon have team line ups for close to all of the near 45,000 games. (About 300 are still missing line-ups and are still being researched). These are all in photocopies/scans so the data has to be manually entered into spreadsheets so as to upload the results onto the website in a more swift manner.
To provide some perspective, the entire NSWRL/ARL/Super League (Aus)/NRL history, from the first game in 1908 til the Grand Final in 2019 will comprise of 13,618 games. The UK club games had already surpassed this number of games in the 1895-96 to 1926-27 period!
In the future
*It would be very difficult to obtain line ups and even scorers, but we have given thought to trying to have all bush games in the NSW and QLD regions on the site, as well as the lower grade comps in Sydney and the NSWRL reserve grade, possibly even the old President’s Cup/ U21’s/NYC competition.
*A women’s Rugby League portal.
Not to mention there’s close to 15,000 updates sitting in emails and in comments to the site that need to be actioned/replied to.
