    Joy Neville: Rugby union referee makes history

    Well done to Joy Neville.:clap: An example to us all, not to get discouraged. She said a less-than-encouraging conversation with a senior rugby official had only strengthened her determination to succeed. "I said 'look, I want your opinion on something, I have one question - do you think...

    NatWest 6 Nations 2018 Championship - talking points

    NatWest 6 Nations 2018 Championship :eng::france::ireland::italy::scot::wales: Seconds out. Round one. I genuinely wonder which French XV (or should that be XXIII?) will turn up this evening.

    Northern Hemisphere/Southern Hemisphere does Referee's interpretation change things?

    In the context of the Pro14, this man Quinton Immelman is in the middle for Munster v Cardiff. I am wondering if South African Referees penalise the breakdown differently to NH refs.

    2017 Guinness PRO14 -Thoughts

    Hello, Perhaps our Southern Hemisphere refs could share their years of experience with us in the NH. My thoughts were that Intercontinental flights in the lead up to a professional game of rugby, might fall into the category of "those small margins". How have long haul flights affected SH...

    The YoYo Test

    Interesting website seen on Robbie's twitter : (Ross Hanbury)UK World Rugby, along with many world rugby Unions, Federations and Referee’s Societies use the ‘YOYO intermittent recovery test level 1″, to assess the fitness levels of its members across all levels. The YoYo test*is similar to the...
