NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell today paid tribute to outgoing National Rugby League CEO David Gallop for his contribution to the game.

“Over his decade in the top job, David has guided the National Rugby League with great energy and skill, including his crowning achievement of the successful formation of the independent commission,” Mr O’Farrell said.

“I often joke it’s the only job more difficult than being Premier of NSW – and in many respects that’s true because this State is so passionate about its league,” he said.

“David sought to uphold high standards of behaviour by NRL players, as well as instil a great professionalism in its administration. He can be proud of his achievements at the NRL.

“As a keen Wests Tigers fan, I thank David for his contribution to the sport and wish him well for the future,” Mr O’Farrell said.
