Wigan Warriors chairman Ian Lenagan has called for a change in the way the Super League is governed.

Lenagan is a supporter of Super League being ran separately to the RFL, but thinks there needs to be a change in how decisions are made.

When asked about how Super League moves forward, he said: “I think there is room for improvement to the government structure of Super League.

“I’m not sure that 12 chairman meeting every three weeks or so and trying to tell a chief exec what to do is necessarily the right thing and in particular, I and a number of other chairmen don’t like clubs voting something that affects them.”

By this, Lenagan was referring to the decision over whether or not to readmit Toronto Wolfpack. He ended up voting against their readmission, which won the debate by nine votes to four.

Lenagan suggested a couple of different solutions for those types of decisions, adding: “The Toronto example, where we stepped away and suggested as Super League clubs that it was done by an independent group is a far better way of doing it.

“There are improvements to that governance and how we manage and I think those will occur naturally in the near future.

“I quite like a non-executive chairman because that person can be a casting vote and a sensible person from outside. But we can’t afford to pay a chairman and chief executive.”
