V’landys to stay on as NRL leader
PETER V’landys will remain as part of rugby league’s leadership team for at least three more years while former Queensland minister Kate Jones will also join the commission.
Clubs were informed of the news last night with chairman V’landys and fellow commissioner Megan Davis re-appointed to their roles for another three years.
V’landys has not committed to how long he plans to stay on top of rugby league’s food chain as he balances his role with Racing NSW.
The most surprising news came as Jones was announced to fill one of the vacancies left by Amanda Laing in March.
The game has also not replaced Mark Coyne who stooddown in July last year. Jones was the minister for the Commonwealth Games where she worked closely with Peter Beattie, who was the chairman.
“She did a brilliant job with the Commonwealth Games and will do a brilliant job with rugby league,” Beattie said.
“She is a great team player.
“I enjoyed working with her during the Commonwealth Games which were run on time and on budget.”
