"On top of this, Melbourne Storm are celebrating their 20th season this year and continue to remain one of our leading teams in the competition, we just witnessed another spectacular Holden State of Origin at the iconic MCG, and we're delighted that the Victorian Government has recently committed to a multi-million dollar centre of excellence in Broadmeadows for our code.

Dr Green said she was looking forward to the role and continuing to strengthen rugby league throughout the state.

"Victorians love their sport and it's an honour to be part of a game that binds so many people from many walks of life together."

Dr Green commenced as Chairwoman at 1 August 2018.
