'A Democratic Game': Rugby League in inter-war New Zealand with Ryan Bodman.
Wednesday 7 March, 12pm -1pm
Whare Wānanga, Level 2, Central City Library, Lorne St, Auckland.
Cost: Free

In New Zealand, as elsewhere, rugby league faced sustained hostility from rugby union administrators and their allies. Forced to the margins of society, league developed close associations with numerous marginalised communities, as working-class New Zealanders, Kiingitanga Māori and Irish Catholics embraced the code as an expression of community identity, cultural pride and collective defiance against rugby’s ongoing antagonism.

This talk explores this aspect of league’s social and cultural history in the context of inter-war New Zealand.
