New Zealand Rugby Chief Executive Steve Tew has announced his resignation after 12 years in the role.
The Chief Executive is the person that has overall responsibility for the game of rugby in New Zealand.
Tew has worked at New Zealand Rugby since 2001 and will leave in after the World Cup.
Under Tew’s stewardship, New Zealand Rugby has had one of its best periods. Currently, New Zealand Rugby holds all four Rugby World Cups for both men’s and women’s Fifteens and Sevens teams.
This is a remarkable achievement.
