SYDNEY, Aug 14 AAP - The NRL's top medico Dr Ron Muratore, who was instrumental in having the shoulder charge banned and improving the management of concussion, will leave rugby league at season's end after six years as the game's Chief Medical Officer.

Muratore also played an important role in the NRL's move to expand its testing program to include prescription drugs.

"I have enjoyed the contribution I have been able to make to the game of rugby league over the past six years and feel proud of the many significant achievements regarding player welfare," Dr Muratore said in a statement.

NRL head of football Todd Greenberg paid tribute to Dr Muratore's efforts in improving player health and safety.

"Dr Muratore has been instrumental in supporting the NRL over the past six years as we made significant improvements to the safety of the game," Greenberg said.

"We have been extremely grateful to Dr Muratore for the valuable contribution that he has made in his role as CMO and for his commitment to player welfare."
