The head of the Australian Olympics shows no interest in the role of Rugby Australia

MELBOURNE: Australian Olympic Committee ( AOC ) boss Matt Carroll has poured cold water on reports linking him to the vacant CEO position in Rugby Australia (RA).

Several Australian media outlets reported Tuesday that Carroll was to replace former RA Chief Executive Raelene Castle, who resigned last month amid a financial crisis sparked by the new coronavirus.

My name is linked with this role whenever it becomes available, AOC CEO Carroll said in a statement on Tuesday.

I am firmly focused on the current challenges facing Olympic sports and the task of ensuring that Australia's athletes are able to compete to the fullest at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics in 2021.
