Tony Lewis of www.noelkellyskids.info recounts his vist to the New NRL Rugby League Museum and the wonderful treatment he was afforded by Terry Williams

I heard that a new Rugby League Museum had opened up somewhere near the old Sports Ground in Drivers Ave. So after checking with my secret info people (Google). I was able to track down where it is.

It's NRL Headquaters aka RUGBY LEAGUE CENTRAL which is near the entrance to ALLIANZ Stadium. (I was right were the old Sydney Sports Ground was in Drivers Ave).

I was met by Terry Williams of the Museum. Terry has written two Rugby League Books on the history of Newtown.

"Through Blue Eyes" and "Out Of the Blue the history of Newtown RLFC"

Both books are a must have for both Newtown fans and Rugby league fans.

I had spoken to Terry about having a tour of this fantastic museum and doing a story for this web site he was only too happy to show us around it and show us how the touch screen displays work as well as the many exhibits.

During our tour we were introducted to the Museum Manager Frank Puletua. Frank played 152 First Grade games with Pentith. 26 with South Sydney. Franks Rugby League spanned 12 years and he also has University Degrees in Graphic Design and Fine Arts.

The Royal Agricultural Shield and the Winfield Cup, feature in the exhibition, which also includes a pictorial historical journey and several high-tech interactive displays with statistics and video of the game’s 100 Greatest Players and scope to compare past and present players. Every major trophy, including the Maher Cup, Courtney Goodwill Trophy, are displayed. 

Starting on the 4th Feb 2013. The Muesum will be open between 10am and 3pm Monday to Friday. Note : Entry to the Museum is FREE.

Also during the season on Match Days.

Groups are most welcome.

Call (02) 9339 8500 and ask for Terry Williams.

I would allow at least 3 hours to enjoy this wonderful Rugby League Muesum.

Thanks again Terry for your time and knowledge about this special game.

Rugby League.
