THE identity of the seven individuals who hope to succeed where Sir Bill Gammell and Norman Murray seem to have failed with their review into the governance of Scottish Rugby has been revealed.
The Taskforce spearheaded by SRU President Dee Bradbury will try to come up with a proposal for the future governance of Scottish Rugby which will be acceptable to member clubs. The findings of this Taskforce will be presented to Scottish Rugby’s Council at an unspecified date.
The members of the Taskforce will consist of –
Dee Bradbury – President, Council and Board Member
Julia Bracewell – Independent Non-Executive Board Member
Bob Richmond – North Regional Area Council Representative
Colin Rigby – National Division 1 Council Representative
Adam Gray – Glasgow Regional Area South Council Representative and Board Member
Ian Rankin – Co-opted Council Member with responsibility for Pro14
Andrew Little – National Division 3 Council Representative
“I am pleased that Scottish Rugby’s Council have agreed to establish this Governance Taskforce,” said Bradbury. “Our objective is to review the governance of Scottish Rugby and make recommendations to our members on our findings in due course.”
The decision to convene this Taskforce was made at an SRU Council meeting last month after the radical proposals put forward by Gammell and Murray following a six month governance review met with widespread opposition from member clubs.
