Former Prime Minister Scott Morrison has shot down speculation he is planning to join the ARL Commission.

It is understood the avid Sharks fan had a brief discussion with a senior figure in the game recently about the governing body. But Morrison, who attended Thursday night’s Sharks-Storm match, said he had no goal to take a role in rugby league.

“Sounds to me like just a bit of pub talk,” Morrison told The Daily Telegraph.

“Love the NRL and my Sharks. PVL (Peter V’landys) and Andrew (Abdo) have done a great job. Really enjoyed working with them as PM to get through COVID and to expand the Pacific programme.”

When contacted ARLC chairman Peter V’landys said he had not been approached by Morrison. There are no plans to draft Morrison into any role in the short-term nor was he looking at joining the commission any time soon.

Morrison would have to quit parliament to move into the role and there are no vacancies.

Morrison has been a regular at Cronulla matches since losing the election earlier this year and has also enjoyed a holiday in Bali.
