"However, the owners and CEO have a real passion for rugby league and are highly motivated to build the NZ Warriors into a powerful club over the coming years. It's one of several opportunities I'm considering. It does look like an exciting challenge though."

It's understood that V'landys' first "special project" for Gould was to look into pathways with Pacific Islands and New Zealand. But that might be usurped if he takes on a role with the Warriors.

Gould said: "A strong Warriors club is a great asset to the NRL, not to mention its importance to the continued development of International Rugby League, which I know is a priority for Peter V'Landys and the ARL Commission."
