Foxsports has the great news that Canberra product and Brumbies great, George Gregan, is going to sit on the Australian Rugby Union board as the Rugby Union Players Association’s (RUPA) nominee. (no Lusaka, he’s ours now)
“The RUPA Board has spent considerable time discussing the best past player to be nominated for this position on the Board steering the game and we were unanimous that George was the most-credentialed and experienced candidate,” said RUPA CEO Greg Harris.
“Not many players gain simultaneous applause about their achievements on the field and also their career success post-rugby.
“George’s unique understanding of the game and the players, matched with his unquestionable business acumen, make him a very valuable asset for Australian rugby.”
