Does he still have that face splitting grin?

More clubs are in financial trouble than ever, and there are no crocodile tears from Oxley when he says that it is 'almost inevitable' that some will fold.

 

That disappoints and angers the game's zealots, who lay some of the blame at Oxley's door

I'm trying to picture Oxley (not seen a picture for 20 years), and my brain gives me Gordon Brown. How odd!

What does the RFL President do? Is it a ceremonial or executive role?

I think of the role as ambassadorial rather than ceremonial. That's why I think he is the wrong choice
