Cardiff Blues CEO, Robert Norster today commented on the news that Llanelli Scarlets CEO, Stuart Gallacher is to retire from his current role at the close of the season:
"Stuart has been a strong character at the forefront of the challenging and often difficult evolution of our national sport. His wider contribution to our game will probably only be fully appreciated following his retirement given his undoubted knowledge and experience of both the domestic and European game has benefited Welsh Rugby not merely his own club and region.
I would personally like to take the opportunity to thank him for being such a dependable and stoic colleague throughout a demanding unprecedented period of change. His enthusiasm and drive has unquestionably contributed significantly to underpin success across all levels of the game in Wales."
