Welsh Rugby Union: Major Governance Reforms Approved with Overwhelming Majority
Exciting news for Welsh rugby fans! The member clubs of the Welsh Rugby Union voted overwhelmingly in favor of major governance reforms at an Extraordinary General Meeting held on Sunday. Out of 252 votes cast either in Port Talbot’s Princess Royal Theatre or by proxy, only seven did not vote in favor, meaning the 75% majority needed was comfortably exceeded.
As a result, the WRU will appoint an independent non-executive director (INED) as chair and recruit two new INEDs to its 12-person board, doubling the total number of independent representatives to six, with the ultimate goal of ensuring at least five directors are women. Interim chief executive Nigel Walker has said that this is only the beginning of a journey that will see the trust and faith of a nation in Welsh rugby restored and revitalized.
