NRL wants compulsory education, training for players following Ben Barba's French rugby exit

The NRL's chief executive Todd Greenberg has told the ABC he would like to see the condition form part of the code's new player pay deal.

Players should be doing something in addition to playing football "so they have something to fall back on," he said.

"I would expect that will be a big part of the collective bargaining agreement," Greenberg said.
