Elstone excited for Adams
Super League chief executive Robert Elstone admits he's excited to see what the future holds with Tony Adams now part of the RFL setup.
The former Arsenal defender was named the new president of the Rugby Football League last month.
While the appointment came as a shock, the 52-year-old has been tipped to make a real difference as the Rugby Football League try to expand the sport.
The pressure is on Elstone as the RFL try to get some fans back on board but he admits Adams could make a huge impact ahead of the 2019 campaign.
"Tony is going to be a great addition to rugby league," Elstone told Sky Sports News.
"He is an RFL appointment and will take over as president midway through 2019.
"It really conveys the way rugby league is respected across the whole sporting sector and for someone like Tony to come into the game is a really positive thing.
"I am a lifelong rugby league fan and I am so excited about the 2019 Super League season. There are any number of clubs that can win it, the competition is incredibly well-balanced and we have some great players.
"We are providing a platform for growth. It won't happen overnight, but we are ambitious."
