ARU boss resigns after Force axing
- 11 Aug 2017
Australian Rugby Union CEO Bill Pulver will leave his role as soon as a replacement can be found.
'I have made the decision to step down as CEO once the board finds someone to replace the position,' said Pulver.
'I have enormous sympathy for everyone in Western Australia. Simply, this is the right decision for Super Rugby. We need to get the balance right.
'I am very, very sorry for all the people affected by this in Western Australia.
'Sport is a difficult business and we have had a difficult year. This means it is the right time for me to step down and create renewal.'
