The Griqualand West Rugby Union has confirmed that Monte Engelbrecht has been elected as its new president.
It is understood that Engelbrecht was voted into the position unanimously following the union's AGM in Kimberley.
The 51-year-old Engelbrecht is a training manager at the South African Police Services and replaces the outgoing Jannie Louw as president.
Louw will be joining the SA Rugby executive committee.
Engelbrecht will serve as president until at least November 2021, which is when Louw's term was due to end before he moved into SA Rugby administration.
Griquas have a long South African rugby history, having won the Currie Cup three times, the last of which came all the way back in 1970.
They were losing semi-finalists in 2019.
