Our AGM was held on the 17th of May, 2017 and I am pleased to report we have posted a surplus for 2016 of $19,912. Our financials along with the Annual Report can be viewed here.

A vote of members was also held to fill three board positions with the following member-appointed Board Members successfully elected:

  • Gareth Brown, three year term
  • Meredith Knowler, three year term
  • Pete Garden, two year term

Rugby Union SA would like to thank all who stood for the above positions, in particular Declan O’Callaghan, who was not voted to remain on the Board, for his service over the past 6 years, mainly in the areas of sponsorship and marketing.

The third position is for a two-year term only, this is due to the vacancy created by the resignation of Mark Pickard. Mark has been an active and enthusiastic Board member since 2008, when he was heavily involved in securing the International 7s for Adelaide. He has been a tremendous servant to the Union during this time and we took the opportunity to thank Mark for his service at last night’s AGM. We presented Mark with a collage of photographs depicting the many hats he has worn for during his time with Rugby.

Mark has indicated he will remain involved with Rugby Union SA as a referee and supporter and we wish Mark the very best and thank him for his support.
