Former Wallabies flanker Phil Waugh has been confirmed as the new chief executive of Rugby Australia.


The 79-Test veteran replaces Andy Marinos, who quit the post last month and finishes up next week.

Having retired in 2011, Waugh has served as a non-executive director on the RA board since 2018 while working in the banking sector.

The 43-year-old played in two Rugby World Cups, in 2003 and 2007, and captained the side in 2006.

He will head the organisation leading into this year’s tournament in France, which starts in September.

His appointment comes after another former Australian Test star, Joe Roff, became RA president last month.
