Australian Rugby League Hall of Fame Players

The Australian Rugby League Hall of Fame honours players who have shown exceptional skill at rugby league, all-time great coaches and referees, and other major contributors to the game who are Australian. It was initially established with 6 inductees in 2002 with more added each year. To date the latest members were inducted in 2007.

Hall of Fame requires that a player has been retired for five years before being considered for entry. Furthermore, the person must be a high achiever in the sport, and well respected in the community. This is in contrast to Immortals where playing ability is the only criteria.

So a player on an Immortals list may not be on the Hall of Fame list due to drug abuse, racist remarks, or other anti-social behavior that brings the sport into disrepute.
