Members of the Australian Rugby League Commission (ARLC) - the National Rugby League (NRL) clubs, New South Wales Rugby League (NSWRL) and Queensland Rugby League (QRL) - have unanimously approved changes to three rules within the ARLC Constitution at a Special General Meeting today.
Three resolutions received unanimous support of members. A summary of the three rule changes are:
Today is the first time changes have been made to the ARLC Constitution since the Commission was created in 2012.
ARLC Chairman Peter V'landys AM welcomed the outcome of the meeting and acknowledged the unity of members to support all three resolutions. While the Commission was not eligible to vote on the resolutions, the Commission indicated its support for the amendments.
"This is an important moment for the game. It is the first time since the creation of the Commission that members have agreed to changes to the Constitution, it is example of how united the game is to grow and improve the product for our fans and participants,'' he said.
"These are common sense governance changes. Reducing the time a person has to be out of rugby league before being eligible to join the Commission will ensure the Nominations Committee can consider a wider range of people associated with rugby league.
"The Commission supports the changes made today. It will ensure the Commission will continue to have the very best directors to grow rugby league."
