KZN Rugby Union President Graham Mackenzie has joined former CEO John Smit in stepping down, announcing at Friday’s council meeting that he will not continue after five years in the role.

Like Smit before him, Mcakenzie has cited personal reasons and a need to focus on his family and other interests for the decision.

Union vice president Francois Louis will replace Mackenzie for the time being, but it must surely be close to time for an election to decide on a successor to the man who will work closely with new Sharks CEO Gary Teichmann to ensure success of the Sharks brand at all levels.

We’d like to thank Graham for his service and wish him well for the future.

  • @Uli Boelie (Comment 7) : This is the new old regime, the one that worked and produced results (and financials) was the old old regime. :twisted:
