TIMELINE

From 1860 to 1869

1863

The official parting of the ways between Rugby and Association football can be traced to the codification of the various forms of football and the formation of governing bodies such as the FA and the RFU.

Richmond plays Blackheath under Blackheath's rules (it ended in a draw). The was the first recorded club game and was played under the "Harrow rules" but changed the next year to "Rugby rules" after an influx of ex-Rugby pupils. This is the oldest regular fixture in Rugby Union Football.

1864

The first Australian Rugby club is formed at Sydney University.
