Sir Clive Woodward

MALCOLM WALL is the 7/4 favourite with Ladbrokes to take over as the next RFU Chief Executive Officer. Nigel Melville is just behind at 2/1 with World Cup winning coach Clive Woodward a 25/1 chance.

Adam Crozier (50/1) and Will Carling (100/1) appear to have outside chances only.

Alex Donohue  of Ladbrokes said: “It looks like a head to head between Wall & Melville at the prices. Money for McCafferty & Halliday would also be significant.”
