Can a referee really say this?

Post by The Boo Radleys » Mon Nov 23, 2015 7:59 pm

Was watching the young lad in his U18's match with a really diabolical referee who in the first five minutes was being reminded by the watching spectators that above the neck tackling really wasn't on and off your feet around the chest of someone leading with no arms at a ruck could be dangerous...

Only to be told very audibly in front of a bunch of 16-17 year olds to quote 'shut the f..k up' by our lovely Ulster Branch ref'!

Irish reffing at it's finest.

I once had a ref that blew for full time after he'd given us a penalty on the 22. Funnily enough we were losing and went buck daft at him after.

Bound to be some child protection / safeguarding issues with that. I'm sure he's heard worse coming from the players but that is totally unacceptable behaviour from a referee. If some eejit was effing away at Ravenhill in earshot of kids I suspect he would soon be put in his place.

Not on, report to branch pronto if not already done.
