TweetFacebookPeard concerned about grassrootsMore must be done for rugby league in the bush, former Australian Test representative John Peard said.
The ex-international was in Gunnedah on Sunday to support the Men of League Foundation charity golf day.
He said much had changed since his playing era (1966-79), some for the better but some for the worse.
“The pace of the game is certainly a lot quicker,” Peard told the Namoi Valley Independent.
“But I’m concerned about the grassroots.
“Unless the ARL address that, we could be in trouble.”
He also thought the way the game is markets itselfhad to change to remain competitive with rival codes like Aussie rules and soccer.
“We need to promote the game more,” he said.
