Experienced: Nick Mallett

The IRB have announced that former South Africa and Italy head coach Nick Mallett has been appointed to the IRB Rugby Committee.

The 56-year-old former Springbok number eight fills the position of coaches' representative on the committee, with the appointment being effective immediately.

With experience playing and coaching in several countries, including England, France and Italy as well as South Africa, Mallett will bring to the Rugby Committee a wealth of experience of the Game at the very highest level in a career that has seen him take two national teams to Rugby World Cups as well as leading French club Stade Francais to two consecutive national titles in 2003 and 2004.

"The IRB is delighted that Nick Mallett has accepted the IRB Council's invitation to join the Rugby Committee," said IRB Rugby Committee Chairman John Jeffrey.

"Having a broad experience across a range of club and national teams, Nick has considerable experience of the modern Test and domestic Game environment and will give the Committee a valuable insight into important issues facing the coaching of the Game.

"The IRB Rugby Committee plays an important role in advising the IRB Council on all issues related to playing the Game from the community participation level right the way to the top echelons of professional Rugby. Nick, I am sure, will make very valuable contributions to the committee and the Game.
