New Australian Rugby CEO Raelene Castle has nailed her colours to the mast, labelling herself as a Wallabies fan in spite of her Kiwi heritage.
Castle was today confirmed as taking over Australian Rugby’s top job, tasked with leading the sport back to glory across the Tasman.
Asked where her allegiances now lay, Castle made it clear who she’s supporting when the Bledisloe Cup next rolled around.
"Certainly in the past I cheered for the All Blacks," she said.
"One of the things I’ve learned is going into a new organisation - when you get tasked with delivering outcomes and building relationships with people - those relationships and that success becomes very important. So what you want is those people to succeed."
"I will be wearing my yellow scarf proudly, there’s no doubt about that."
"Maybe this has galvanised them, hearing each other's stories and knowing they are not alone," say the nurses behind the Facebook group, New Zealand, please hear our voice.
