Castleford chairman Ian Fulton thinks Robert Elstone is the right man to take Super League forward.

New Super League chief executive Elstone said the competition has ‘something special to build on’ as he met the media for the first time yesterday.

Elstone started as the new CEO for the Betfred Super League last week and spoke at a press conference.

On the appointment of Elstone, Fulton said: “I’m delighted to welcome Robert Elstone to Super League.

“Castleford Tigers, as a member of the Super League Board are 100% behind Robert’s appointment.

“We firmly believe that Super League, headed up by Robert, is travelling in the right direction, and with clubs taking more control this will not only strengthen and grow Super League, it will spread awareness of our great sport far and wide.

“Our initial meetings with Robert have been a breath of fresh air, and my team at Castleford are looking forward to working more closely with Robert’s team to begin the next chapter of Super League.”
