RLPA congratulates Abdo on NRL CEO appointment
The Rugby League Players’ Association (RLPA) Chief Executive Officer, Clint Newton, has released a statement following the appointment of Andrew Abdo as NRL CEO.
“We would like to congratulate Andrew on his official appointment as Chief Executive of the National Rugby League this morning,” Newton said.
“Andrew has led the game well on an interim basis during arguably the most challenging period we have ever faced, and now rightly takes on the role in a formal capacity.
“We believe a strong relationship between the RLPA and NRL is fundamental, and plays an essential role when striving to establish strong foundations in which the game can stand beyond 2020.
“We have demonstrated what can be achieved by working together over the past few months, and we remain eager to finalise revisions to the Collective Bargaining Agreement with Andrew and his team to ensure we provide our members and the wider industry with clear direction for the coming years.”
