Super League executive chairman Robert Elstone has notified the league of his intention to leave his position. Elstone, the former Everton chief executive who had been in the role since June 2018, survived a vote of no confidence only last November.
“Super League can confirm that it has received notice of Executive Chairman, Robert Elstone’s, intention to leave his position.” the league said in a statement. “The matter will be discussed by the Super League Board and no further comment will be made at this time.”
Elstone was recruited by Super League clubs dissatisfied by the running of the game by the Rugby Football League (RFL) to head up a rival administration to prioritise the distribution of central income generated by the top flight.
