Robert Hicks ready to make major changes

Robert Hicks is seemingly taking to his new role like a duck to water.

Hicks was appointed the Rugby Football League’s Director of Operations and Legal back in October and it looks like he is getting stuck in immediately.

The 40-year-old’s primary focus will now be on the Operations and Legal role after stepping down as a full-time referee at the same time – although he will continue as a part-time official, with a focus on offering support to developing young talent.

And, Hicks has taken to social media to broadcast an update about what he is currently doing in a bid to change the game.

Hicks stated: “Excellent morning with people from various parts of the community game. Agreeing on a number of key points. We now have to change the culture for the better. Today will see action.”

It’s a defiant and positive statement from the official who has been one of the top full-time referees in the past decade as he attempts to influence a change in culture in rugby league.

Hicks has been part of the full-time system since 2011, marking a decade at the highest level.
