Robins chief call for major changes
Hull KR boss Tony Smith claims rugby league now has an opportunity create a new blueprint for the future of the sport.
The Super League season has been brought to an abrupt halt amid the coronavirus crisis and it's not yet known when a return to action might take place this year.
Smith claims making sure clubs survive financially through the pandemic is the priority for the sport but the break does provide a chance for the game to make significant positive changes going forward.
"This is an opportunity for us," said Smith. "The immediate focus is getting through this now. But once we get some answers to that, then we really need to take stock of what the game should look like, could look like, how strong it needs to be and in what areas.
"I'm not sure there's been a lot of focus on that for a number of years. This is a chance to do that."
