Referees to get TVs

Sounds like a good move to me. It will save a great deal of confusion an
will see the referee restored to the sole arbiter of law,25883,3943_5868505,00.html#

Back after a Long Break

The combination of Autumn Internationals, man flu, Christmas and the weather have contrived to keep me off the park for over two months. Sunday saw me return to action in a U17 game which was a top of the table clash.

The home side were dominant, but managed to give the oppo two first half interception tries. They fought back to win 18-14 despite the referee blowing up 8 1/2 minutes early and needing to restart the game.

It wasn't my best day, the lay-off took its toll as did the mince pies. I wasn't sharp enough and my fitness was below where it needed to be for the speed of the game. Still and enjoyable contest.
