Rob Andrew will leave his role as the RFU’s Director of Professional Rugby at the end of this season, the Rugby Football Union has announced.
The former England outside-half, 53, has resigned but will complete work on the union’s latest agreement with Premiership Rugby before leaving.
“It feels like the right time to step down at the end of the season,” said Andrew, who joined the RFU in 2006.
He will be replaced by former England scrum-half Nigel Melville.
