Box Hill and Port Melbourne were teams in the Victorian Football Association and the 'League' referred to is the Victorian Football League. (Both competitions played Australian Football, not rugby.)
Note: Australia's indigenous football code is and has always been officially called 'Australian Football'. No senior officiating body has ever referred to it as 'Australian Rules Football'. The 'rules' tag is a construct of the media in rugby football holdouts of NSW and Queensland.
