The Welsh Rugby Union has revealed they’re supporting Sir Bill Beaumont to be re-elected as World Rugby chairman.

Voting opened this week with an official announcement expected on May 12th.

WRU chairman Gareth Davies says they’re both very strong candidates but the general feeling was that Bill should be the next leader.

Beaumont is standing for re-election against World Rugby vice-chairman Agustin Pichot.

Rugby Europe has also pledged its support for Beaumont, but former Argentina scrum-half Pichot is being championed by the southern hemisphere Sanzaar countries, and has also positioned himself as a campaigner for emerging nations as he looks to shake up rugby’s establishment.
