The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - WHAT'S THE BUZZ -

PETER V’landys has had his first big test in his dual rac­ing and rugby league roles.

On Tues­day night the Rac­ing NSW boss’ first pri­or­ity had to be the flash Syd­ney Har­bour bar­rier draw for The Ever­est. It meant he couldn’t make the of­fi­cial in­ter­na­tional rugby league board din­ner. Not a prob­lem.

The next morn­ing he turned up to make a speech to the IRL Con­gress. “He was bril­liant,” said out­go­ing chair­man Peter Beat­tie. “The del­e­gates were blown away by his ideas for the in­ter­na­tional game. It’s in­cred­i­ble how he han­dled it in such a busy week for rac­ing.”
