Bill Beaumont has confirmed that he will stand for a second term as World Rugby chair.

The former England captain has held the role at the world governing body since 2016.

He will look to secure re-election in May and has named French Rugby Federation (FFR) president Bernard Laporte as his vice-chair candidate.

In a statement, Beaumont said: "Having consulted with my union and region colleagues and my family, I can confirm that I will be seeking re-election as World Rugby chair at the council meeting in May.

"I will be standing with FFR President Bernard Laporte as my candidate for vice-chair.
Bernard is a great servant of the game and shares my vision for a strong, sustainable and inclusive game that provides even greater opportunity for expansion and growth.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed this four-year term and have always sought to lead for the global game, not the few, by engaging with all levels of our sport to understand what really matters to our unions, players, fans, broadcasters and commercial partners."

He added that, if re-elected, he will focus on undertaking further governance reform of World Rugby structures and strengthen and accelerate the development of women in rugby.

"We will be unveiling details of our five-point manifesto in due course," Beaumont added.
