ARU CEO, Bill Pulver, sat down with The Roar to answer questions on the big issues facing Australian rugby at all levels.

Starting with the Wallabies being the number one sporting brand in Australia, as outlined in the Australian Rugby Union’s five-year strategic plan, and moving all the way down to funding for grassroots rugby, we put your questions to the number one man the game in this country.

In a 20-minute interview, we wanted to get an insight into the custodian of the game’s approach to the following broad topics.

» Wallabies
» Super Rugby
» NRC and grassroots
» Governance

We crowdsourced a majority of the questions, and while we couldn’t ask them all, the spirit of all the questions Bill answered came from your suggestions. A big thanks should go to all of you who put their two cents in – we read every question and made sure each was considered before the interview.

A big thanks should also go to Bill Pulver for volunteering his time to speak to us, and ARU Communications manager Michael Earsman, who works tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure that these things are set up, followed through on and happen on the day without a hitch.

The only thing left to say is watch the video above, and let us know what you think in the comments section below.

Bill’s video interview is part of The Roar‘s CEO series, where we bring you the word directly from those in charge of all the major codes in Australia. You can view the rest of the articles in that series here.
