StuartLancasterEngRWC2015SB

As is normal after tournaments, tours or test series a review will be conducted to identify recommendations and actions to enable the England senior team to be in the best possible position to compete and win at the highest level.

With the assistance of the Panel*, RFU CEO Ian Ritchie will make recommendations to the RFU Board after the conclusion of the Rugby World Cup.

Scope:
To review the preparations for and performances in the Rugby World Cup.
To review the effectiveness of the coaching, management and support team.
To consider all feedback given by relevant stakeholders.

RFU CEO Ian Ritchie said, “While the RFU will be focussing on continuing to deliver a fantastic tournament over the next two weeks, it is hugely disappointing not to have progressed through to the knockout stages. With that in mind, we have begun to review the senior team’s campaign to ensure that we learn and improve from this experience in order to be consistently successful. There will be extensive input from players, coaches and management staff, as well as an external perspective gathered. The details of this feedback will remain confidential, with recommendations then made to the RFU Board.”

*Panel: Ian Ritchie (RFU CEO & Panel Chairman), Ian Metcalfe (Professional Game Board Chairman), Ben Kay MBE – (former England International & World Cup Winner), Ian Watmore (ER2015 Board member, former Permanent Secretary to the Cabinet Office, former FA CEO and former Accenture Managing Director), Sir Ian McGeechan OBE (former British & Irish Lions and Scotland Coach).
