Gallop out of a job

6:36 pm on 5 June 2012

After more than a decade in charge of rugby league in Australia, David Gallop is stepping down from his job.

The long-serving National Rugby League chief executive is quitting his post as CEO of the new Australian Rugby League Commission immediately.

ARLC chairman John Grant announced the move in a joint statement, saying it was by mutual agreement and that Gallop "understands the need for a fresh approach".

Grant says the move came with the Commission, installed to run the game in February, seeking to bring a new approach to the way the game is viewed, structured and governed.
