Rugby: Welsh Rugby Union vows to implement recommendations of damning independent review

Rugby: Incoming Welsh Rugby Union chief executive Abi Tierney has vowed that all of the recommendations from the independent review report will be implemented. The review found aspects of the union culture were sexist, misogynistic, racist homophobic and not properly challenged. Thirty-six recommendations covering governance, complaints handling, the union’s approach to inclusion and diversity, and investment in the women’s game, have been made. Tierney says the report is incredibly humbling and describes issues, actions and attitudes that are hugely regrettable.
