The NRL has been bitterly divided over one issue in recent weeks with the crackdown on high tackles at the forefront of the media.
But, for some NRL players, they have been furious about the fact that they were allegedly not consulted about the decision-making process. And, for one man in particular, he has come out firing.
Manly captain Daly Cherry-Evans has demanded that Australian Rugby League Commission’s chief, Peter V’landys, consults the game’s players about where the future of rugby league is heading, rugbypass.com has revealed.
“You go to work tomorrow and you’ve signed up for something and then it gets changed. How would you feel?” Cherry-Evans asked.
“We have had our rules changed on the run mid-season with no consultation.
“We’re adapting, we’re adjusting, we’re doing the best we can.
“But you go ask the fans whether they like what they’re watching.”
The Manly skipper doesn’t want anything in return, except to be in the know about potential changes.
“We’re not demanding money, we’re not demanding them to give us (anything),” Cherry-Evans said.
“We’re asking that if you’re going to change our working conditions then let us know and involve people.”
