    Sharpe Joins Reds Board

    http://rugby.com.au/news/2016/05/10/...oins-qru-board


    Wallabies legend Nathan Sharpe has been appointed to the QRU board.

    The former Queensland and Western Force player replaces James Horwill who left the Reds last season, as the player-appointed director on the board.

    Sharpe, based in Queensland now, was on the RUPA board during his career, with stints as a delegate from 2004-2008 and 2010-2012.

    Player-appointed directors can be current or former players, who have been retired for fewer than five years, a category in which Sharpe fits having called time on his career in 2012.

    QRU chairman Damien Frawley said Sharpe would be a welcome inclusion on the board.

    “Nathan will be an excellent addition to this Board given his significant Rugby experience. He’s stayed close to the game since he retired from playing and understands all Rugby’s issues and opportunities,” he said.

    Sharpe played 70 games for the Reds as well as 92 Western Force matches, making him the most-capped Super Rugby player of all time, also adding 116 Test caps to his name.

    Good to see the great man remaining an integral part of Rugby, we need people of his calibre and standing.

    Now that he has joined the Reds Fox Sports may just let him back onto their programs!

    In the West's report from AAP it completely fails to mention that he played for the Force at all..

    https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/sp...-to-qru-board/
    Former Wallabies skipper Nathan Sharpe has joined the Queensland Rugby Union's board as a player-appointed director.

    Sharpe, who played 70 times for the Reds and earned 116 caps for Australia, replaces the departed James Horwill, who stepped down from the board late last year when he moved to continue his career in England.

    His advice will be vital as the Reds continue to rebuild their squad, and as the QRU also deals with significant structural change, including the recent departure of former chairman Rod McCall and the resignation of chief executive Jim Carmichael, who will leave the organisation at the end of the season.

    "Nathan will be an excellent addition to this board given his significant rugby experience. He's stayed close to the game since he retired from playing and understands all rugby's issues and opportunities," QRU chairman Damien Frawley said.

    Sharpe is originally from Wagga Wagga in NSW but moved to Queensland as an 11-year-old and joined the Reds as a teenager in 1996.

    He retired in 2012, is currently the director of a national recruitment company and has held various commentary roles with Fox Sports and Channel 10.

    What's the big deal? He's from Queensland, played the majority of his rugby there.

    Feels he wants to give back. Good on him.
    Move along people - nothing to see here
