The deadline for nominations for the position, vacated by Oregan Hoskins earlier this year, was Monday.

Alexander, the incumbent deputy president, was the only nomination.

However, there is set to be a battle royal for the position of deputy president.

Francois Davids (and executive council member) and Western Province boss Thelo Wakefield will go head to head.

Wakefield is also one of nomination for a position on the SARU executive council – in the event of Davids being elected as deputy president.

The four nominations for the executive council are Schalk Liebenberg (KwaZulu-Natal), Vivian Lottering (Falcons), Jan Marais (Griffons) and Wakefield.

  1. Don’t know much about Alexander, but Wakefield is a prime example of someone creeping up the drainpipe. Maybe the same credentials accounts for Alexander?
    I suppose a guy like Kevin de Klerk wants nothing to do with the Saru disasters.

  2. What’s with the Darth Ludeke photo Bunny?
    It’s not aqppropriate to scare the sporting public this way.

  3. @Jacques:

    Kevin De Klerk fits that mould exactly…

    Don’t know much about Davids but Wakefield will be the final death knell in South African rugby’s coffin!

    I’m pretty sure I remember a few debacles with ALexander.. soemthing to do with the Watson’s perhaps… will have to do some digging…

  4. @Americano: I thought I’d frighten a couple of people by puttig Ludeke’s pic in.

    I don’t know a lot about Alexander. Not sure what his credentials are, other than currently being second in command. Anyone that can help us out? Piepiemier?

  5. He served in Sascoc for a while, which, if you have any knowledge of that gravy train deluxe, should probably tell you all you need to know about what to expect.
