Section 6 of the report covers skills and competencies of board members. We listed eight areas, including finance, legal, governance, risk, board experience, business management, and human resource management. In terms of expressions of interest, the new incoming board members will effectively benchmark the skills they are bringing against these. When it actually goes to appoint the independent directors, it will be cognisant of the skill sets that are there in order to get complementary skills around the board table. The issue is about trying to disaggregate the corporate business piece from the football business piece. Recommendation 51 has a list of skills and competencies and the preceding section outlines how essential they will be, not just for the board but also for the five business committees that will need audit, risk and compliance, finance-----
