Woodward elected Harare Rugby chair

HARARE - Roger Woodward is the new chairperson of the Harare Rugby Association board after he was elected at last weekend’s Annual General Meeting held at Prince Edward School Cricket Pavilion.

Woodward, who is the Old Johannians Rugby Club manager, will supervise the rugby activities in Harare province until the 2019 World Cup when the new board’s mandate comes to an end.

A member of the previous interim board which organised the elections, Woodward will be deputised by Paul Gosho of Mufakose Rugby Club while Police Defenders’ Crispen Katogu is the new secretary.

“It’s a great honour to be given this post though all I will be doing will be focusing the entire board’s efforts into building some credibility and structure into the game in Harare,” Woodward told the Daily News.

“I hope to encourage sponsors to invest in the game by instilling confidence in them by showing that rugby is well run.

“With the U21 League I hope to encourage school-leavers to keep playing the game and widening our talent pool.”

The OJs manager admitted that it will be a challenge to separate his association with his club and the provincial hat he is now wearing.

“It will be tough to balance the two as I have a passion for my club but I think my main focus will be the province as it will benefit the game as a whole in Zimbabwe and that is my main drive,” he said.
