By Simon Johnson, Rugby Football League Chairman
On behalf of the RFL and the entire Rugby League family, I express our deepest and most heartfelt condolences on the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The whole sport is in deep mourning at this very sad news.
The Rugby League was honored to have her as patron until 2016, and throughout her long reign, Her Majesty’s sense of duty and commitment, her wit and wisdom have been an example to us all. .
We are grateful for Her Majesty’s consistent and positive influence on our communities for many generations.
We extend our deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences to the Royal Family, including RFL Patron, HRH The Duchess of Cambridge.
Our clubs and players at all levels will show their respect to Her Majesty wherever Rugby League is played in the coming days.
