Leeds boss backs RFL proposals

SUPER League clubs will come together on Wednesday to try to adopt a definitive position on the RFL’s recent Policy Review proposals, which include a reduction in Super League to twelve clubs and the adoption of the RFL’s favoured proposal of two divisions of twelve clubs splitting into three divisions of eight after 23 rounds of fixtures from 2015.
Leeds Rhinos chief executive Gary Hetherington is hoping that the clubs will give their backing to the RFL’s proposals, after the RFL postponed its recent EGM because of opposition from some Super League clubs to those proposals.
“There is no doubt that that meeting damaged the game,” Hetherington told League Express.
“We need to come together and plot a way forward, one based on common sense, which isn’t in abundant supply, unfortunately.
“Inevitably there is some dialogue going on, but it is important that all the clubs come together, and everyone needs to say exactly what they think.”
