    I cant see the argument

    Well, this is the match report, I cant see the argument of why it shouldnt have been???? Sounds nailed on to me. 'With XXXX on the attack, a spilled ball created an opportunistic counter strike down the visitors left flank. XXXX chased down the XX runner and with just metres to go reached out...

    The Cheats Charter

    So I had this today.... Yorkshire vs Lancs When I arrived the selectors for north of England approached me and an email from twickenham said that even if a player receives a red or yellow card they can be replaced and no team can go down to 14. So foul play,repeat infringements and cynical...

    The X factor?

    Ok so we all get told about elite referees needing the X factor to make it to the very top. Can anyone see it in Luke Pearce? I certainly can't. Or is it not, we want 18yr olds regardless of ability so we can mould them?

    Off to the Smoke Wimbledon vs Old Colfeians

    Any heads up on the teams, other than one seems immensely stronger than the other in the league? Also anyone recommend a nice hotel in the Wimbledon area?

    Offside at the tackle

    So a new one on me today. Could someone point me to the LAW that states the offside line at a tackle for the defensive side is the ball? Cheers

    Assessment Experiment

    Gents (and ladies) and even LLP. I wondered if we could get an experiment going, just out of interest from me. Feedback from players, coaches and assessors vary somewhat, obviously from personal perspectives, which is entirely understandable. But how do refs view certain things, we seem to...

    So this is why I never talk to coaches. L6 cup game, local derby. Very physical, needed to keep cool and concentrate. My coach was there, an assessor was there and I was videod. Hard fought game away team win and a few yellows in the game. Coach - good game Assessor, great game should have...

    white boots attention

    So I have some lovely white boots, bought for me from someone who means an awful lot. Wore them at a society training day, lots of tongue in cheek tuts and smiles, so I asked an assessor what he thought? He said well you don't want to bring attention on yourself, so my reply? Well why do I get...

    7s Competitions

    So I am currently on a 7s 'circuit' Whilst attending these competitons from the South right up to Edinburgh there always seems to be a number of teams that withdraw or dont turn up. These are teams from National leagues through to invitational teams or even low league teams. Is this rife...

    Bryce Lawrence, what is it

    I am doing some self analysis of my management and looking at other referees. Watching the s15 game and Bryce is refereeing. Whilst his technical performance is ok, what is it about his management that is annoying me? He always seems flustered. Does he allow to much discussion that becomes...

    New Comms Kit mini Review

    Well I bought myself a lovely new comms kit. It is the Eartec system. Why did I want one? Mainly for an open mic for the referee, I was finding it difficult to ask the ARs to say "watch them behind me" as I sprinted for a line break, as I would have to find my PTT button. This and obviously...
