- by admin
The NRL’s chief financial officer has said he is “delighted” the season has been so successful.
Ben Mowen said it was a “unique opportunity” for the NRL to “get to the next level”.
“I’m delighted for our fans and all of our clubs, we have achieved this and we’re looking forward to working with the NRL in the future to achieve even more,” he said.
Mowen also confirmed the club was considering a merger with the Australian Rugby Union (ARU) to “better reflect our community”.””
I’m really pleased with the way the game has been played, and I’m looking forward, working alongside our partners in the NRL, to the future.”
Mowen also confirmed the club was considering a merger with the Australian Rugby Union (ARU) to “better reflect our community”.
“We are still very much in discussions with the ARU about how we would like to merge the clubs and continue to grow the game as a whole, and the ARN and NRL,” he told NRL 360.
“We’re exploring all of those options.”
The merger has been heavily criticised by many players and fans.
Former Rabbitohs star Adam Reynolds told the ABC’s Sunrise program that the “incredible” season had been a “challenge”.
“It’s the best we’ve ever been at the moment,” he quipped.
“The way the players have responded to it has been amazing, and it’s been amazing to see the players and the coaches out there pushing each other to get to the finals, which they did.”
It was amazing to be in the finals last year and be the first team to do it.
“Rabbitohs coach Trent Robinson was equally supportive of the success, but also said the game needed to continue to improve.”
I think we’ve got a good opportunity to do that with a merger of the two clubs,” Robinson said.”
There’s so many players who are working at the top levels of the game, and so many who are in the business.
“There’s no doubt in my mind that it’s an opportunity that we need to continue developing and to develop as a business.”
