NRL calls for Cronulla to review its position in relation to CEO Zappia

The National Rugby League has called on the Cronulla Board to urgently review its position in relation to allegations against its Chief Executive, Tony Zappia, by former female employee, Ms Jenny Hall.

“The emergence of new and damaging information that was not available to the NRL, nor it is understood the Cronulla Board, at the time the matter was last reviewed necessitates a swift response from the club,” NRL Chief Executive, Mr David Gallop, said.

“The NRL is on record as saying that it would review any new information that came to light.

“As much as Ms Hall has previously refused to discuss the matter with us, the tape aired tonight certainly provides that.

“If the tape is a faithful recording it would be difficult to see how the club could not take the strongest action possible.

“We will seek an urgent response from the Board.”
