SMITH ADDRESSES REFORM CONCERNS: In Sydney, Brent Read reported Smith has "moved to quell mounting concern among clubs" over governance reform by insisting the changes are in "no way designed to remove some of the most powerful figures from the game." A group of "influential club chairmen met in Sydney" on Wednesday. One of their "chief concerns" was the perception that the NRL would want "all future chairmen to be independent." Should that arise, the likes of Sydney Roosters Chair Nick Politis and Canterbury Chair Ray Dib would be "forced to relinquish their positions as chairmen of their respective clubs." Smith: "I have never said independent chairman, never. It's about raising the bar for the boards across the game over a long period of time" (THE AUSTRALIAN, 7/25).
