'I love it' Hull KR chairman's new-found rugby league affection amid football shortcomings

Hull KR chairman Paul Sewell OBE has expressed love for his 'newly adopted game' with the Robins flying high in Super League. Sewell, the chair of a revamped board at Craven Park, has become deeply invested in rugby league after getting involved with Rovers in recent times.

Sewell was appointed as chairman in December 2022, with the club acquiring expertise across a number of areas as the Robins look towards a brighter future. That has started to come to fruition already, with work in and around Craven Park planned and on-field success continuing to build.

He has been brought in to help drive the business side of the club while others, such as David Kilburn and James McNicol, are also actively involved in growing the club. Sewell's enthusiasm remains clear after his latest post on X, formerly known as Twitter. In the post, he expressed how he has found himself falling in love with the greatest game of all.

He posted: "London this weekend - lots of Premier League football there ie 11 millionaires playing 11 millionaires all owned by billionaires. So glad to get back to the north and my newly adopted game of Rugby League, which has everything football has not, and I love it."
