AFAIK AG is the clubs sole owner, however there are now about 4-5 directors.


Glover and Elston are the 2 sole registered directors .The other/s recently announced may be associate director/s who hold no "director" responsibilities (cas have 2 or 3 )

Glover has 95% and Elston 5% shareholdings

As I thought then - Glover and WTW adds to the list of sole-ownership clubs in SL.

I wonder if the RFL have any concerns about the way ownership of the game is heading?

I'm sure AG would be willing to welcome investors onto the board,. Trouble is good ones are a bit thin on the ground.

Why, the club name is used more than the representetive town or city name, single ownership is the preferred model when using franchising.
Look at the NFL, it's the perfect model for franchising and clubs sometime move ownership and location when failing or financial benefits are possible.
Personally, I don't think it works in British sport, particularly in RLs case, and it certainly doesn't achieve what the franchising was set out to do, create sustainable we'll run clubs.

All sorts of rumours from supporters of various clubs at the GF last night, regarding the "situation" at WR.
Fingers crossed its 2 & 2 = 5.
