‘I make no apology’: Rugby league boss Peter V’landys fires back at players’ association
The ARLC is facing pushback from the Rugby League Players’ Association over a proposal to increase fines for players who offend against others.
ARL Chairman Peter V’landys wants to bump the punishment for poor behaviour from $50,000 to a maximum of $130,000, which RLPA CEO Clint Newton has ‘flatly rejected’.
Mr V’landys told Ben Fordham “we run the game”, and harsh fines show the NRL takes issues like violence against women and children seriously.
“What Clint doesn’t appreciate is that 99 per cent of his players do the right thing, one per cent do the wrong thing.
“You need deterrents … I make no apology on that.”
