IRB officers re-elected
April 1, 2000
Vernon Pugh QC has been re-elected Chairman of the IRB for a four-year term along with Vice-Chairman Rob Fisher and Treasurer Tom Kiernan.
The appointments were unanimous. The three will continue as Rugby World Cup directors on a pro-tem basis until the Interim Meeting of Council, in Dublin in late October-early November.
At the same meeting Malta were the latest union to be accepted into membership of IRB. Council was told Malta met all the conditions for full membership. There are now 92 unions and one regional association in the organisation.
