Super League executive chairman Robert Elstone will step down on Friday

Super League has announced that executive chairman Robert Elstone will leave the governing body on Friday.

The announcement comes just over three weeks since the former Everton chief executive tendered his resignation.

The 57-year-old had been in the post since June 2018 but had come under increasing pressure recently to resign.

In a statement issued by the league, Elstone said: “I am grateful to the Super League Board for giving me the opportunity to do the job I have always wanted and will look back with great pride on what has been achieved since I joined Super League at the start of its new journey, almost three years ago.

“I’d also like to thank colleagues, clubs, coaches and players, and our great partners for their unswerving commitment to Super League. They have made my time at Super League enjoyable and fulfilling and I leave with many wonderful
memories.

“Rugby League will always be in my blood and, just as I have always believed for as long as I can remember, it has a bright and exciting future. I look forward to watching that unfold.”
