World Rugby loses key member

October 23, 2015 12:19 am

World Rugby Sevens Operations Manager Beth Coalter has passed away.
Beth was a much-loved and highly-valued member of the World Rugby team.

Beth’s passion and professionalism during 10 years with the international federation was a major driving force behind rugby sevens successful campaign for Olympic Games inclusion and the growth and ongoing success of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series.

As a mark of respect from the global rugby family, the World Rugby match officials will be wearing black armbands for the Rugby World Cup 2015 semi-finals at Twickenham Stadium this weekend.

Beth visited Fiji last year to monitor the facilities for Fiji to host a series tournament.
