Additions to TRL review committee
TOOWOOMBA Rugby League club presidents have come up with two possible names for the league match review committee after a meeting of presidents last week.
All 11 club presidents were at the meeting, except Goondiwindi and Warwick presidents, as the leaders met to express concern only one person was currently on the match review committee.
Wattles president Barry Glass said it wasn’t the fault of TRL president Greg McIntyre that he was the only member of the match review committee.
“You can’t blame Greg (for any concerns), it is just too much pressure for one man to rule on,” Glass said.
The meeting was called after a week when four players were charged, three from Valleys and one from Wattles, after the A-grade club game between the two sides at Herb Steinohrt Oval.
The charge was later dropped against the Wattles player due to an administrative problem which meant the matter wasn’t dealt with in the required time. The Wattles player had pleaded not guilty.
Glass said he understood the issue of appointing more people to the match review committee would be considered at a general meeting of the TRL tonight. Last week, McIntyre told the Daily News he was keen to encourage retired players and referees to be part of the review committee.
The TRL works under the same basis as the NRL with the match review committee grading or dropping any charges from weekend games.
