John Grant to learn his fate

ARL Commission chairman John Grant will find out soon whether he’ll be able to hold on to his position when disgruntled NRL club chairmen attend an emergency meeting today.

The meeting of the ARLC’s stakeholders is due to be held at 10am at Rugby League Central and the clubs have the numbers to oust Grant if he is unable to convince the clubs he can offer them better funding.

Grant has argued the NRL could no longer afford the original funding deal with a number of issues taking precedence including grassroots funding.
