Mark Alexander was reelected as president of SA Rugby for another four years at the organisation’s annual general meeting in Newlands on Friday.

Alexander will have the opportunity to continue the work he started on a turnaround strategy for SA Rugby after he succeeded Oregan Hoskins two years ago.

Advocate Andre May from the Leopards Rugby Union failed in his bid to unseat Alexander and strike a blow for the so-called ‘smaller unions’.

Francois Davids‚ the incumbent deputy president‚ also retained his position after being challenged by Jan Marais of the Griffons.
