New Super 15 team appoints CEO

Australia’s new Super 15 rugby union team, the Melbourne Rebels, on Monday appointed Melbourne Storm administrator Brian Waldron as its chief executive.

During Waldron’s six-year tenure the Melbourne Storm became Australia’s most successful rugby league club.

Melbourne Rebels Chairman Harold Mitchell said Waldron will commence his duties with the Rebels in March.

The Rebels will be Australia’s fifth team, alongside the New South Wales Waratahs, Queensland Reds, Western Force and ACT Brumbies, in the southern hemisphere’s elite provincial competition.

South Africa, New Zealand and Australia Rugby (SANZAR) is moving to expand its current Super 14, formerly Super 12, competition from the 2011 season in a bid to boost popularity. — Sapa-AFP
