Walkinshaw to head rugby organisation?

According to reports in the British press Tom Walkinshaw is about to become the chairman of Premier League Rugby once again. Walkinshaw held the post three years ago before retiring and handing over to Harlequins chairman Charles Jillings. Jilling is to leave the post at the end of June and says that he will now concentrate on his club. Walkinshaw, who is the chairman of Gloucester Rugby Club, is expected to take over.

The Premier Rugby organisation is a union of the 12 top clubs in Britain.

Walkinshaw is no stranger to F1 fans, having run the Benetton, Ligier and Arrows teams during an F1 career which spanned 10 years.
