This is an interesting sentence:

Rugby league officials have also come under pressure to reunify the game by the Government, who have made a total of £28m available in loans to offset the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

If Elstone was paid on performance he would owe the game money. Apart from free pizzas i can't think of anything else else he brought to the game

 

At least he rid us of a French TV deal, and encouraged further contraction of the game. Not many other COs would have had that vision.

I do hope he is prevented from taking up employment,elsewhere,for the next 12 months.

I wonder what Lenagan does for an encore.

And also who is telling the press that, is it the RFL? It has to be really as it cant be anyone else because that is who the Government have been dealing with. They aren't exactly impartial on this and have a vested interest.
