The Rugby Football League adds its thanks to Jennie Price, CEO, Sport England who has announced she is leaving the organisation after 11 years’ service.

Ralph Rimmer, Interim Chief Executive The Rugby Football League says: "On behalf of the sport, I would like to thank Jennie for both her commitment to Rugby League and her dynamism as a leader in the sports sector.

"Jennie should be rightly proud of her many achievements at the helm of Sport England, including the sports strategy, the sports governance code and the award-winning This Girl Can campaign.

"This Girl Can has in part inspired our own exciting and successful focus on growing the girls' and women's game including the founding of Women's Super League - all of which is delivered through the support of Sport England.

"Jennie understands and respects Rugby League, including the unique contribution our sport makes in providing outstanding sporting opportunities as well as mental wellbeing outcomes in many less advantaged communities. I am personally very grateful for her championing of Rugby League and wish her every success in her next exciting ventures."
