“Job done”: Ken Davy admits sport was in a rough space in 2020 as he underlines pride in Super League role

Huddersfield Giants man Ken Davy has today stepped down from his role as Chair of Super League.

On his departure, Davy has now reflected on his time in the role he listed the exciting changes he has brought to the sport:

“It is difficult to overstate the importance to Rugby League of the realignment and the new Joint Venture. By bringing all the sport’s assets into one place, it will be far more effective to work with our TV and commercial partners, whilst for the first time ever, we have agreed an overall split of income across the whole sport. Going forward, every pound of income will be shared throughout the sport, ensuring that the whole of the Rugby League family will benefit from every extra pound generated, meaning we all have a vested interest in its success.”

He also said that he could describe his time in the role as “job done” but admitted it was difficult to have optimism two years ago.

Davy said: “Two years ago it was difficult to see a way forward; now there is an incredible amount of optimism within both Super League and the sport. The fact that virtually every change has also received unanimous support speaks volumes for the positive attitude that all the clubs have demonstrated. Of course, there are still major challenges to face, of which the economic environment and finances are uppermost. Nonetheless we have established a framework for Super League and the whole sport which gives everyone the opportunity to succeed and prosper. It has undoubtedly taken longer than was originally envisaged however as I step down from the Chair, I think we can safely say ‘Job Done’.”
