“New Zealand Rugby's stand against corruption in sport shows strong leadership,” said Suzanne Snively, Chair of Transparency International New Zealand.
As part of its new education campaign to raise awareness of anti-corruption regulations on 2 April 2014 New Zealand Rugby announced that top-level players and administrators will pledge to adhere to ‘Anti-Corruption and Betting Regulations.’ The regulations prohibit everyone involved in professional, or other Rugby where players are paid, from betting on rugby anywhere in the world.
Transparency International New Zealand believes that good governance is a prerequisite for stopping corruption. Snively said, "Having good policies in place supported by education and prevention programmes strengthen integrity systems and help ensure those vulnerable to corruption are stopped in their tracks.
New Zealand Rugby is proactively considering risk management strategies in relation to corruption which is extremely good practice and to be commended as an important approach to maintaining integrity in both sports"
