John McDonald AM announces retirement

Queensland Rugby League (QRL) chairman John McDonald AM will retire from his post at the end of this year, bringing to a close decades of resolute service to a game he has scaled the heights of as a player, coach and administrator.

McDonald informed the QRL Board last weekend that he would not be seeking re-election at the annual general meeting in December.

QRL chief executive Robert Moore today paid tribute to McDonald, who completed his first term as chairman of the QRL in 1992 after many years of service as the Toowoomba/South West delegate on the board.
