Bob Dwyer calls for head of ARU boss

    2017-04-06 12:23

    Sydney - Former Wallabies coach Bob Dwyer has thrown his weight behind calls for Australian Rugby Union CEO Bill Pulver to resign.

    This comes after the Australian sides' nightmare start to the Super Rugby season. Aussie sides have lost all 11 matches against their New Zealand counterparts in 2017 thus far.

    This trend is mirrored at Test level, where the Wallabies have only beaten the All Blacks once in 16 games since 2011.

    To add to their woes, one of the Aussies' Super Rugby sides faces the axe next season as it is believed this will beef up the competitiveness of the other four sides.

    "The board and Bill need to resign," Dwyer told AAP.

    "The game is not only the Wallabies, the game is not only Super Rugby. The game is all those who play and support the game.

    "After all, the people who play and support the game are the ones who fund the game.

    "They’re the people we have to satisfy."
