ARL won't stand in the way of Independent Commission

The Board of the Australian Rugby League met today and put its full support behind an Independent Commission to run and administer the game of Rugby League in Australia.

A draft of the new constitution, which will be required for the new structure, is already being prepared and a substantial amount of the detail to be included in that constitution and surrounding documentation was also resolved today.

While there is still a lot of detail to be worked through, everyone is working towards the date of the November 1, 2010, as the most convenient date for the restructure to occur.
