“Playbook” presentation goes on the road

“Playbook” presentation goes on the road


Where is NZ Rugby League headed in the next four years?

The local league communities now have a chance to see the vision for the game, with NZRL chief executive Phil Holden beginning his national tour to present his "Playbook" strategic plan.


"It's the culmination of several months of consultation throughout the rugby league community, and effectively dictates our pathway over an exciting and challenging stage of the game's development, both domestically and internationally," says Holden.

"Under 'The Game Plan' - our previous strategic plan - NZRL has become a highly regarded organisation in the eyes of our stakeholders.

"There has been tremendous growth in the game across the country. We can look back proudly on our achievements and now begin to look forward to the exciting opportunities ahead of us, with the pinnacle being co-hosts of the 2017 World Cup."

NZRL's "more than just a game" philosophy has seen it establish innovative social development programmes, using rugby league to help its community improve their lives off the field. It has been compelling and has set rugby league apart.

"The Game Plan now evolves into 'The Playbook', where we delve further into the detail of how we can achieve our goals and fulfil our aspirations," says Holden.

"We have developed The Playbook on the back of an exhaustive consultative process, where we asked our key stakeholders about what has worked over the last period and what needs continued focus.

"That feedback has helped shape our way forward."

After unveiling the plan to staff and zone general managers last week, Holden takes his roadshow to Christchurch for the Southern Zone annual meeting on Sunday.

Over the next couple of months, he will visit other centres, so watch out for your opportunity to see the plan near you.

Presentation dates scheduled so far are:

April 13 Southern AGM, Christchurch

April 15 Greymouth

April 16 Dunedin

April 17 Invercargill

May 7 Wellington

May 8 Nelson

May 12 Counties-Manukau

  • Gordon Campbell: On The Best Albums Of 2016

    OK, I’m not even going to try and rationalise this surrender to a ‘best of’ listicle. Still…maybe there is an argument for making some semblance of narrative order out of a year that brought us Trump, Brexit and the deaths of Prince, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen and Alan Vega, who I missed just as much as the Big Three. So without further ado….oh, but first a word from the sponsor More>>
