    RUPA boss Xenos to join Rebels

    Today at 8:44 AM Super Rugby
    by Beth Newman


    Rugby's players' boss Ross Xenos is moving to club land, joining the Rebels as general manager - commercial and marketing.

    Xenos, who has been Rugby Union Players' Association (RUPA) CEO since 2015, will start with the club in August,
    The Rebels have been slowly restructuring their corporate areas since Baden Stephenson took on the CEO role last year, and Xenos's appointment the latest.

    Xenos had worked across a number of roles in RUPA, before succeeding Greg Harris as CEO, becoming just the fourth head of the organisation.

    It is unclear who will take over from Xenos at RUPA, though that process will begin in the coming weeks.
    “Ross is highly respected, professional and comes with a very strong network," Stephenson said.

    "We look forward to Ross driving our commercial pillars which includes many exciting strategies in the local community, regional, interstate and overseas.”

    With Xenos and Clarke there now, all I can see is a "Confidentiality Clause" in the contract to stop them from giving any further evidence in any future investigation.

    How is this $1 Rebel organization paying for all high paid execs? $300K to $400K PA a pop per exec? Plus 40 players. And with tiny crowds?
    Surely the ARU is not still secretly funding all this?

    Tim Cherry was appointed GM Commercial at Rebels land in Nov 2017 - Is he staying? Or is this position now expanded to GM Commercial and Marketing? Does Tim Cherry now report to Ross?

    I wouldn't say there's secret funding about any of it - it's all quite brazenly on show!

    They're being a bit overconfident in believing they have a future business that will continue past the next year or 2.

    If/when ASIC come through within that period that may have a detrimental effect on being allowed to stay running - when the shit hits the proverbial.

    ARU and Victorian Government are its funders. Not sure what Baden means when he talks about “commercial pillars”. Perhaps that’s what Ross is there to do - build pillars.

    ASIC’s statutory powers to compel people to give evidence trump any commercial agreement. They can’t get out of that.
