Brian Canavan has been appointed Head of Football for the NRL.

CEO Todd Greenberg said today he was delighted that Mr Canavan had accepted the role, given his level of experience in the game.

"Brian is one of the game's best administrators and is well respected among the States and 16 clubs," Mr Greenberg said.

"So it is an outstanding result for the game to secure someone with his expertise in such a crucial role."

Mr Canavan is currently Chief Operating Officer of the Gold Coast Titans and previously spent 18 years in senior roles at the Sydney Roosters including CEO, Assistant Coach and Football Manager.

He was also a special project consultant for the ARL and NRL for four years.

The former teacher has a Level 4 coaching certificate and a post graduate certificate in sports medicine.

Mr Greenberg said Mr Canavan's focus would be on pathways, participation and game development.

"One of my priorities is to encourage more people to play Rugby League and Brian will develop strategies to increase the participation level," Mr Greenberg said.

"While Brian is naturally reluctant to leave the Titans he recognises this is a unique opportunity to utilise his skills to grow the game across Australia and develop the right pathways for our rising stars.

"I also want to thank Titans CEO Graham Annesley and Chair Rebecca Frizelle for supporting Brian's move into the role in the best interests of the game."

Mr Canavan will begin work in the new role in early July.

New NRL Head of Football Brian Canavan's first priority "will be a review of Pathways Document" and growing participation.

Canvan tells BSB that NSW Cup and QLD Cup competitions need to be better resourced. Canavan will commence with the NRL in July

This is the real point of it all, giving the competition the same level of support that these competitions enjoyed prior to Super League.

And people keep claiming that the Super League War is done and is history - when it's effects are still plain to see.

NRL Clubs To Pay For Poaching: Proposal

POACHERS must pay in a bold new proposal that will forever change the NRL and force clubs to develop their own.

The Courier-Mail can reveal exclusive details of the pathway review for rugby league in Australia that will finally address the increasing gap between the NRL's haves and have nots.

The NRL is formally reviewing its development structures with the $28 million failing National Youth Competition to be scrapped at the end of 2017.

Replacing it will be enlarged NRL squads and standardised rookie contracts.

One of the key points of the new pathway proposal, which the majority of NRL clubs are pushing for, is a development fee for poaching a player which acts as a reward for the club who built the player's skills.

The development fee harks back to the 80s when you could not take players from rival clubs without paying them.

The Courier-Mail understands the poaching payment could be more than $50,000 per player and juniors who stay at their club could be rewarded with future salary cap concessions.

The fee plus cap concessions means it could cost a notorious poaching club like the Roosters more than $100,000 on top of the player's salary to steal another club's junior.

Those costs will make poaching prohibitive unless it is on a genuine superstar, forcing clubs to do what the Broncos, Cowboys and Panthers have done and invest heavily in academies.

For too long a select few clubs have developed players for the rest of the competition

NRL clubs are correctly arguing that the gap between the haves and have nots is growing larger by the season.

There is a fear among NRL chief executives the competition will soon resemble the AFL where the majority of games are too easy to tip.

In last year's NRL season, there were six competition points between team three and four on the ladder.

There was a 20 competition point difference between the minor premier Roosters and the wooden spoon Knights.

In the 2013 season there were six competition points between first and seventh.

The Broncos have lost several players they spent hundreds of thousands of dollars developing only for other clubs to profit.

Corey Norman at Parramatta, Ash Taylor at the Titans, Jayden Nikorima and Dale Copley at the Roosters, Matt Parcell at Manly and now Kodi Nikorima is set to be taken by the Storm.

The Cowboys are set to lose James Tamou, a player they developed from a Roosters reject to a Test prop.

Former NRL strategist Shane Richardson created the initial pathway model but it will be significantly different when it is presented to the ARL Commission late this year.

Among the considerations will be standardised rookie contracts meaning, regardless of talent, every 19 and 20-year-old or rookie aged player will be paid the same wage.

A proposal is being discussed that each club will only be able to contract six rookies among those age groups.

Prior to the rookie contract, players in the 17 and 18 year age group will be offered a generic junior contract with a set value.

The clubs that invest in these age groups through a professional player development program will be rewarded with first options on the player's services and possible future cap concessions.

These changes would lead to more one club players and mean far less player transfers and market movement, particularly at the younger age levels.
