Army Rugby is pleased to announce that Colonel Natasha Ludwig has assumed the position of Vice-President for Operations from Colonel Clay Sutton who completes a very successful five years in the position.

As a player, she has represented the Northern Territory, the Australian Army, and the Australian Services, retiring from playing with the birth of her first child in 2004. Her first significant management role was as the Army Women’s National Manager in 2011-12, which included being Tour Manager for the Army Women’s tour of New Zealand in 2011. “Army Rugby is in excellent shape ranging from the quality of rugby played on the pitch to the quality of the culture off the pitch, so it is a pleasure to be taking on the role at this time. I'm very excited by the opportunity presented, but also humbled by my selection. I have big shoes to fill and a long and proud history of success and leadership to live up to!” said Natasha. Natasha Ludwig graduated from the Royal Military College Duntroon in 1996 into the Royal Australian Corps of Transport. She has held a number of command and staff appointments, including command of the 9th Force Support Battalion, during which time she also commanded the Force Support Unit – 8 on Operation Slipper. In January 2015, she was posted to the Australian Command and Staff College as a member of the Directing Staff, and will assume the position of Director of Courses at the college in 2017.
