The current Acting Chairman of Rugby New Zealand 2011 Ltd, Brian Roche, has been confirmed in the role after taking over in a caretaker capacity from Jock Hobbs, who's fighting cancer.

Hobbs resigned from the Board in December 2010.

Roche took over in May last year following Hobbs' initial health concerns. Roche is also CEO of New Zealand Post.
