A TEN-person steering committee has been formed to draw up a proposal to have one, united rugby league club in Grafton next season.

On Wednesday night committees of the Grafton Ghosts and South Grafton Rebels met for two and a half hours at the Grafton District Services Club to formally discuss a merger.

The meeting was chaired by Darren Spooner, Coffs Harbour-Clarence Command chief inspector of police, who will also chair the new steering committee.

The steering committee, comprising five members from each club, will come up with a plan which will then be put to the respective members of both clubs to vote on whether to proceed.

For the plan to go ahead it requires a majority vote from both clubs.

A time frame of approximately one month has been set for the steering committee to arrive at a proposal to put back to members of both clubs.

It is understood, while the majority are in favour of pursuing the one club strategy, there are members of both committees opposed to merging.
