NRL CEO Todd Greenberg today welcomed the appointment of a temporary administrator to replace the Parramatta Leagues Club Board.

“Our only interest is to help Parramatta become a strong and successful club again,” Mr Greenberg said.

“That will only happen if the club has a strong back office with the highest standards of governance.

“This decision paves the way for the Eels to get back on the right path for the fans, coach and football team.

“The NRL will work closely with the administrator to make that happen as quickly as possible.”
