Wells expecting Elstone to improve Super League
Castleford Tigers director of rugby Jon Wells insists Robert Elstone will help the game of rugby league develop under his stewardship.
Elstone was appointed Super League chief executive last year but was forced to bide his time before implementing new ideas and rules.
He has already overseen a number of changes on and off the field although there is still work to be done ahead of the 2019 season.
With the new campaign just a week away, Wells insists Elstone is the man for the job and fans of rugby league should throw their support behind him.
He told the Pontefract and Castleford Express: "I watch with fascination from the sidelines at the evolution of Super League.
"I think Robert Elstone is fantastic with a broad vision and I hope everybody gets behind him. Robert’s spoken about embracing our roots, our hard working, working class, gritty, northern roots, but he’s also in the same sentence spoken about the power of taking the Wigan Warriors to the Nou Camp and having an international appeal.
"The Magic Weekend is an interesting one, the jury’s still out on that and whether it was the right move. But at least we’ve got someone who is making decisions rather than just sitting back and I hope that is reflected in the standard of play."
