Eels boss Denis Fitzgerald stood down

Controversial Parramatta rugby league chief executive Denis Fitzgerald has been stood down pending an investigation into the club's recent board election.

The club released a brief statement on Tuesday night confirming Fitzgerald, a 30-year veteran in the role, had "agreed to the board's request not to perform his ordinary duties whilst the investigation is undertaken."

Fitzgerald's power base was effectively eroded when five new directors were voted on to the league's club's board on April 26.

The Rebel 3P board had a strong anti-Fitzgerald sentiment but the immediate action appears to concern the "votes for vouchers" scandal where selected members were sent $30 meal vouchers along with how to vote cards for the previous board.
