Stuck in the past

Today, 8th March 2017, is International Women’s Day.

Great to see, therefore, that the RFU is embracing the occasion by refusing to commit to a deadline to make 30 per cent of its board female.

The Government’s Code for Sports Governance requires national sports governing bodies to “adopt a target, and take all appropriate actions to encourage, a minimum of 30 per cent of each gender on its board.”

By refusing to commit to a deadline for reform the RFU risks being stripped of millions of pounds of government funding.

It appears that the 57 old farts are alive and well.
