The advent of professionalism in the game has forced several clubs into trouble and sparked the merger of Richmond, London Scottish and London Irish after a spate of insolvencies. While media coverage has concentrated as much on events off the pitch as on it, changes in the RFU's board have gone unnoticed, including last week's appointment of Nick Eastwood as FD. A qualified accountant with 18 years experience, Eastwood spent seven years with Arthur Andersen before joining US-based company Lifetime as financial controller and then chief financial officer of one of its subsidiary companies in 1988. Eastwood will also become a member of the RFU Management Board. In 1993 he became head of corporate services for Body Shop where he had responsibility for financial control and performance management. Current finance director David Fison will continue to work for the RFU on special projects until his retirement. Jonathan Hall has also been appointed as the RFU's first company secretary.
