I am an RFU National Panel member and have been involved in games at National 1, 2, The Championship, B&I Cup and the old European Challenge Cup. I have reffed at every level in Hampshire, including all the finals; Plate, Bowl, Cup Vets and Siam Cup. Two games really stick out for me, the first at Twickenham Stadium, when our own county Hampshire won the RFU County Plate – what an honour!
Secondly being invited by Rugby Against Cancer to referee the first game in Hampshire. Since then I have become an active member of the organisation, supporting the team with officials for matches and drive to enhance the great cause.
Being involved in Rugby Against Cancer is a way of trying to help, in any way I can, to fight this awful disease. My daughter and son are very much behind me with this and they attend events alongside me – it has become a family affair.
I would like Rugby Against Cancer to become the best rugby charity to support people dealing with cancer.
