Ghana Rugby hail election of Babbou on World Rugby EXCO - Sports Leo

Ghana Rugby on Sunday congratulated Rugby Africa’s Khaled Babbou on his appointment to the executive committee of World Rugby.

In his message of congratulations, President of Ghana Rugby Herbert Mensah hailed the election of Babbou on the new executive committee (a first for Africa Rugby).

“The president of Rugby Africa’s ascendence to the executive committee is an indication of changing times. The elections are often seen as simply a stay or changing of the guard and not a time to change,” Mensah said.

Africa is well-represented on the new World Rugby Executive Committee with both Mark Alexander (SA Rugby Union president) and Babbou winning a seat.

Mensah congratulated both Babbou and Alexander but was quick to express the hope that they will do all they can to improve the support to Africa from the world governing body.

“We fully realise that the World Rugby Exco [executive committee] is there to execute the will of the World Rugby Council for the greater good of rugby. The plight of developing rugby in the world, however, is huge and I believe that the position of a region such as Africa as one of the fastest-growing areas of the Game should be reviewed as a matter of urgency.”

The new World Rugby executive committee will comprise of Bill Beaumont (Chairman), Bernard Laporte (Vice-Chairman), Brett Gosper (Chief Executive), Angela Ruggiero (Independent), Lord Mervyn Davies (Independent); Mark Alexander (South African Rugby Union), Khaled Babbou (Rugby Africa), Bart Campbell (New Zealand Rugby), Gareth Davies (Welsh Rugby Union), John Jeffrey (Scottish Rugby), Bob Latham (USA Rugby) and Brett Robinson (Rugby Australia).
