The Friday Interview: Scott Walker

The Friday Interview: Scott Walker

The IRFU’s National Domestic Game Manager Scott Walker is our subject for this week’s edition of ‘The Friday Interview’. We caught up with him at the recent launch of the Union’s 2008-2012 Strategic Plan, ‘Building on Solid Foundations.’

In his interview, Scott discusses the goals related to clubs in the Union’s 2008-2012 Strategic Plan, the importance of ‘community’ in club development, initiatives to improve current clubs and get new clubs on board and also the areas of women’s rugby and refereeing.
