GreenEDGE Cycling Owner Rice Considers Joining Consortium Atop NRL Melbourne Storm
GreenEDGE Cycling Owner and Melbourne businessman Gerry Ryan said that "he will decide early next month whether to join the consortium that has taken control" of National Rugby League Melbourne Storm, according to Steve Mascord of THE AGE. Ryan told Fairfax Media that "he was yet to commit to the group." Ryan: ''I think we're all going to meet on the fourth or the third of June, when we're going to discuss the final rollout of the new structure. We'll have some dialogue then and I'll decide what I'm going to do." Ryan said he was impressed with new CEO Mark Evans and that the new owners would ''bring value to the club,'' but believed it would ''take a few years to turn the club around" (THE AGE, 5/23).
