With the departure of CEO Graham Annesley, the search is now on to find his replacement ahead of season 2019. 

Annesley finished up with the club last month and Executive Chairman, Dennis Watt, along with co-owners, the Kelly and Frizelle's, have made it their next priority to find a suitable candidate for the top job. 

Applicants for the role have been coming in thick and fast, with Watt explaining that the club is going through a process that will hopefully end in the right result, in the coming weeks. 

"We've had a Melbourne Cup like field of applicants and we've had some great interest from some very capable people," Watt said. 

"It is a range of people but some with strong NRL and commercial credentials. 

"Hopefully within the next few weeks we would've made our decision."
