Former England captain Bill Beaumont has declared himself in the running to become the new chairman of the Rugby Football Union.
"I will allow my name to go forward," Beaumont told BBC Radio Four. "If people within the union feel that I could do a good job, then I think so as well.
"I don't know if being a former top player qualifies you to be good at administration, but I'd like to think that I've got something to offer."
"I wouldn't say that I'm the favourite. There's no doubt there'll be a lot of good people who'll fancy their chances as well."
The vice-chairman of the International Rugby Board has been awarded an OBE and a CBE for his services to rugby.
