V'landys is not a guy to sit back and wait to see what happens. If we don't see much activity from him then we know the ARLC Chairman is little more than an honorary position.

Yep anyone that follows racing knows what a tremendous job he has done.

I’m sure he has done his due diligence and understands the scope of the role.

He is not looking for a holiday, he has found another seriously big challenge to tackle. I just hope he understands the game of Rugby League, because if you combine his skill set with a good vision, you’re looking at a significant improvement in the state of the sport.

I assume the edits are being made in reference to Brett Finch.

Something seriously wrong with the bloke, I saw him a couple of weeks back at the Eels Manly game and he was EDIT.

Exactly, greeneyed! Instead, there's a thread on r/nrl where you can speculate on it.
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

Shane Flanagan statement

The National Rugby League (NRL) has advised Shane Flanagan he will be eligible for registration in the NRL as an assistant coach for the 2020 and 2021 seasons.

Mr Flanagan’s eligibility for registration will commence from 18 December, 2019.

Mr Flanagan’s registration is contingent on he and any future employer complying with a range of conditions set by the NRL.

NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg today met with Mr Flanagan and advised him of the decision.

Mr Greenberg said the NRL had created a path for Mr Flanagan to return to coaching.

“I have spoken to Shane at length and he has expressed significant remorse andaccepted responsibility for his past actions and the detrimental impact they have had on the game,’’ he said.

“We have created a pathway for Shane to return to the coaching ranks. Today’s decision gives Shane an opportunity to be registered in the NRL.

“This is not a set and forget approach. Shane and any future club who employs him has numerous conditions which they must comply with and the Integrity Unit will continue to monitor his conduct over the next two seasons.”

Mr Flanagan said he was pleased to have the opportunity to seek registration and would consider his options over the coming months.

“Today I met with the NRL and I both respect and accept the course of action they have taken,’’ he said.

“I look forward to returning to the coaching ranks, firstly as an assistant coach and hopefully one day a head coach again.”

Mr Flanagan has been told the NRL will give no consideration to expediting his return to a head coaching role beyond today’s decision.

Shane Flanagan was the head coach in charge of a club with a systematic program of drug cheating and was involved in salary cap cheating. He broke the terms of suspension from the NRL twice. Why on earth is this bloke being permitted to ever be involved in the NRL again?

I mean surely he has demonstrated he's not a fit and proper person to be involved in the code...

I get that they let Laurie Daley back in the NRL after he did the Jacko’s Pizza advert, but Flanagan may even have a worse case to answer???

This absolutely stinks.

Not only did he knowingly break the drug use rules, but broke the terms of his suspension for that while also organising salary cap breaches.

The only thing I can think of to make his complete disregard for the game worse is to actually EDIT on the doorstep of NRL HQ.

Absolute pig who should be a long way from our sport.
