RWC'15 chief set for exit?

England Rugby 215 chief executive Paul Vaughan is reportedly under increasing pressure to hold onto his position. The Times reports that speculation is mounting that a shake-up of the board of England’s Rugby World Cup executive team is imminent as concerns grow at a perceived lack of urgency in preparations for the tournament in 2015. "There is a feeling that things have been pottering along,” a source said. “It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the sport in England and they have to make the most of it. There is a lot riding on it, especially after what New Zealand produced. Their ‘stadium of four million’ concept was a triumph. It is all about perception, the message and creating a buzz.”
