I think this is a really bad move. People should not be allowed to own two RL clubs in this way.
I seem to remember when Ian Lenagan left London to take over at Wigan he had to surrender his shareholding with the London club.
I wonder what the situation is,and how it may be viewed,when Gary Hetherington is joint owner (?)/chief executive at Leeds;Kath Hetherington is now chief executive at Wakefield and their son-in-law James Rule is part owner chief executive at a 3rd Super League club,Widnes ?
Does an outright owner of 2 clubs in separate leagues differ from a family with such an important role at 3 clubs in the same division ?
I am aware that the RFL do not police shareholders very well.
How will it be viewed in the relegation season next year - if that is the case - when Leeds and Wakey play Widnes on the artificial turf if the result is crucial ?
