Richardson to stay on at Wakefield
Tuesday 13 July 2010
Ted Richardson will survive as Wakefield chairman despite financial difficulties that could have led to a ban.
He entered into an Individual Voluntary Arrangement last week over a failed property deal but the Rugby League is unlikely to use discretionary powers to oust him.
Fortunately for Wildcats, they do not rely on Richardson's investment and their bid to retain a Super League licence should be unharmed.
However, the Championship One promotion candidates, Blackpool Panthers, could lose league points if they are found to have breached their salary cap by an RFL inquiry.
Elsewhere, Francis Cummins and Willie Poching have announced their intention to leave Leeds' coaching staff at the end of this season.
