Former Sharks CEO Brian van Zyl has been elected as the new president of the KwaZulu-Natal Rugby Union (KZNRU).

This was confirmed at the union's extraordinary general meeting (EGM) on MOnday evening.

Van Zyl takes over the reigns from acting president Dr Lulu Bodla who had been automatically appointed to the position when the then-president Schalk Liebenberg was elected to the SA Rugby Board.

Dr Bodla returns as the deputy president and both men will serve in their respective positions for three years.

The Sharks posted on their official website that Van Zyl "was welcomed back with open arms after a successful run as the CEO of the Sharks" and "returns to the fold bringing with him a wealth of experience in rugby administration".

The current Sharks CEO is Eduard Coetzee, who took over from Gary Teichmann in July 2019.
