Didn't see that coming. I wonder what he can bring to the game.

I like Burnham and he always is a good supporter if the game. Not sure exactly what the role entails but having him involved in the game is a good thing.

Who's he replaced? Was it Maurice Watkins?

I agree it is a good appointment, if he can utilise his influence anywhere

Air Commodore Dean Andrew of the Royal Air Force.

Its a ceremonial position but Mayor of Greater Manchester and a relatively high-profile politician and fan of the game is a good an appointment as any really. Unlikely it will do anything significant but never a bad thing to have his backing.

Good appointment. True fan of the game. Good to see him involved

From Leigh, lives in Golborne. Both Wigan locations...Wigan run the RFL?

An Air Commodore is a senior rank in the RAF (a Brigadier is the Army equivalent) but still a long way off a head of organisation rank. Burnham is a massive step up profile wise even if the position is ceremonial.
