There are six uncapped players in the Ireland squad for the summer tour to North America that was named this morning. An Emerging Ireland squad has also been selected for the Tblisi Cup in Georgia.
Lux, who won 47 caps for France as a centre/winger between 1967 and 1975, and ERC Director Peter Wheeler made themselves available for election to the post.
"I am delighted to have received the backing of the ERC Board of Directors and I very much look forward to continue working closely with everyone involved with our two great tournaments in driving European club rugby forward," said Lux.
