Nigel Owens makes it clear: “This is not soccer”
A post about a quality refereeing moment, who would have thought it? And Nigel Owens certainly made his presence felt; “I don’t think we’ve met before, but I’m the referee on this field, not you.”
This short clip illustrates a lot of what is good about our sport. I’m not going to start bashing football just yet, but I’m happy to laud Rugby for the respect it shows at all levels for the opposition, the supporters and, importantly, the Ref. You can have a ball, some posts and as many players as you want but without a referee there is no game.
