THE long running saga of what to do with the governance of Scottish Rugby took another twist this afternoon when SRU President Dee Bradbury issued a ‘club communication’ to announce the creation of a Task Force which will looking into the thorny issue.
There is no mention in the communication of the governance review conducted by Sir Bill Gammell and Norman Murray last year, which was presented to clubs at the start of December and received a fairly hostile reception.
The brief message from Bradbury said –
Following the Scottish Rugby Council meeting last Thursday the decision was taken by the Scottish Rugby Council to form a Task Force to address the issues of Governance within Scottish Rugby. The current Governance Working Party will be stood down. This new task force will be established swiftly. The population of this group will be a decision of Council and will be confirmed to clubs as soon as possible. The Scottish Rugby Board is fully supportive of this initiative. It is anticipated that the task force will meet in the coming weeks to progress matters.
