George Piggins Stands Down

Loyal and often controversial Rabbitoh mentor, George Piggins has announced that he is standing down as Chairman of the South Sydney District Rugby League Football Club after thirteen years in charge.

The decision was reached following a marathon meeting between Piggins and Nicholas Pappas this afternoon at South Sydney Leagues Club.

After long discussion, both parties describe the compromise as being very much in the best interests of the Club.

"I have given the issue a great deal of thought and reached the decision that I would only be staying in the Chairman's role for another twelve month period,? said Piggins.

?It became obvious that the candidates suggested by Nicholas Pappas would make an excellent Board. I think the make-up of the new board will be very strong and I look forward to watching the Club develop under its guidance," Piggins concluded.

The new Board structure includes five directors that have been serving on the Piggins Board in recent months, while four new faces will appear on the new Pappas Board.
