Peter V’Landys praised by Hugh Marks as Nine confirms commitment to rugby league


“Rugby league restarting is one of those things we need to make sure happens as part of getting through this and getting out the other side into a recovery,” Marks told The Ray Hadley Morning Show.

“Those discussions are ongoing.

“One thing I want to see come out of this is that investment goes back into club footy. It’s the tribalism of rugby league that is its greatest strength. Investment in clubs, players and those communities has been underdone for some years and again that’s something I’m agitating to make sure is part of the recovery so we can see a sport that has a great long-term future that warrants our investment in it.”

Greenberg is contracted until the end of the season, but there is ongoing speculation he may not last that long. Marks said his relationship with V’landys had gotten off to a promising start.

“Very impressed,” Marks said. “He’s a man who wants to get things done and he’s a man who is very good at cutting through a lot of noise, simplifying the issues at hand and looking for the right outcomes.

“I’m very impressed with what I’ve had to do with him so far.”
