THE ‘task force’ which was set up by SRU President Dee Bradbury last month to look at the issue of Scottish Rugby’s governance structure has been disbanded, with the Scottish Rugby Council stating that the organisation’s focus at this time should be on “the welfare of our people and Clubs and the financial position of the company”.
Meanwhile, SRU vice-president Ian Barr has been added to the Board as a Council Elected Non-Executive Director, filling the seat vacated by the passing of Adam Gray.
“Ian has been an observer to the Board during his time as Vice President and the Council believe he is a suitable candidate to provide continuity to the Board at this crucial time,” said a club statement issued on behalf of the Council this afternoon. “Ian has previous Board experience, as he served as a Scottish Rugby Board Director from 2013–2015.
“The decisions that will be taken by the Board and Council in the forthcoming months will have long lasting effects on our game, our Clubs and the Union. By assuming this role, it will enable Ian to be involved in the decision-making processes and have full knowledge of the information that is required to make all necessary decisions.”
