Former Wallaby and NSW Waratah Captain Mick Mathers has been appointed President of New South Wales Rugby Union, taking over from Tim Gavin who has stood down after three years in the role.
Mathers has held the position of Vice-President of NSWRU for the last three years, prior to that he held positions on the Unions Judicial panel and was Team Manager of the Waratahs in the early days of Super Rugby.
Former World Cup winning full-back Marty Roebuck was elected to the vacant Vice Presidents position.
In added news, NSWRU recorded a financial surplus of $191k for the 2014 year attributed to increased funding under the licensing agreement for the Waratahs which totalled $1.537k.
