23. NICK PAPPAS South Sydney chairman
A highly-respected figure in the game. Generally considered the voice of reason among rival clubs and the NRL alike, Pappas is often used as a sounding board by topranked NRL officials. His first priority will be restoring the Rabbitohs as a premiership force but Pappas, a lawyer, takes a holistic approach to the game. He is part of a number of subcommittees and has been mooted for higher roles within the game.
