Castle, an Australian-born New Zealander, was the first woman to lead any of Australia's major sports.

Her departure ends a turbulent reign marked by a series of crises and escalating financial problems.

The coronavirus shutdown piled further pressure on the cash-strapped governing body.

SA Rugby on Friday communicated its appreciation and best wishes to Castle.

SA Rugby CEO, Jurie Roux, said his organisation had valued her contribution and considered approach at a Sanzaar level for the past two years.

He said the organisation would always have a warm welcome for her and wished her all the best in the next stage of her career.
