CHAIRMAN & CEO’S REPORT

Welcome to the 2017 New South Wales Rugby Union (NSWRU) and NSW Waratahs Annual Report. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support as the organisation embarked on wide scale changes across the business as well as our team. Throughout the last 18 months our organisation grew stronger through the unification of the NSWRU and NSW Waratahs, which bought together the community side of rugby with the elite. With these changes to business operations came significant cultural changes as roles within the organisation were modified to better meet the needs of the organisation and our stakeholders for the future. Although there is still work to be done the foundations are in place to create a well-rounded organisation equipped with a greater understanding of the various components that make up New South Wales. For us, the focus has been on unification and mutual understanding to drive better outcomes for the business.
