The Scone Football Club in 1899 played Rugby Union. Professional Rugby League was introduced into Australia in 1908 as a ‘break away’ code following developments of the renegade Northern Rugby Union in England. On resumption after the devastation of WWI Scone adopted Rugby League as the preferred winter game. ‘The Thoroughbreds’ were born.
