NRL 2018: All you need to know

The NRL has made a few big changes to its backroom staff in the wake of the NRL’s 2016/17 season, with the appointment of the CEO of the New South Wales Rugby League, Neil Doncaster.

He will oversee the organisation’s future governance structure and oversee the club’s corporate plans.

Mr Doncaster will also oversee the development of its corporate plan and its corporate development program.

The NRL will also appoint an external director to advise on the governance and governance structure.

The changes come after the NRL was rocked by the 2016/2017 season when the NRL received a number of reports of high level players using banned substances, including cannabis and ecstasy.

The team was suspended for four weeks after it was revealed players had taken illegal drugs including cannabis, cocaine and amphetamines.

This was not the first time the NRL had been embroiled in allegations of high-level players using drugs.

In February 2018, former New Zealand Test lock Sam Burgess admitted to using drugs including cocaine and ecstasy in the past, but denied using drugs to make his Test team better.

A number of players also pleaded guilty to drug-related offences and were subsequently banned from playing for five years.
