Harry Sunderland
Rugby League administrator & Journalist
  • General Info
General Information
Harry Sunderland was an Australian rugby league football administrator and journalist. Sunderland was born in Gympie, Queensland in 1889. From 1913 to 1922, Sunderland was the Queensland Rugby League's secretary. His administration is credited with the growth of the League in Queensland despite the First World War. However towards the end of his tenure with the QRL, player discontent with his administration led to the breakway formation of the Brisbane Rugby League. Sunderland was the team manager for the 1929?30 Kangaroo tour of Great Britain. Following development work by both Sunderland and the Rugby Football League based in England, an exhibition match between Great Britain and Australia at Paris' Stade Pershing in December 1933 inspired the beginnings of rugby league in France. On 25 October 1938 Sunderland arrived in Wigan to take up the duties of Secretary-Manager at Central Park. On 28 September the following year, his contract was terminated and he and the club parted company. At the start of the 1950s he submitted a plan to the Australian Rugby League Board of Control for promoting rugby league in the United States.
