Peter Morgan, a North Midlands referee, sadly died recently. Peter was like many of his colleagues throughout the country who give up their time to ensure that we get games officiated at all levels, from Mini and Junior through Colts to all of the lower sides in our clubs and then if proficient enough to First XVs.
Most of the games I watch do not involve my own club, so I see the match from a neutral point of view, however, some of the comments I hear directed at officials worry me. While it is good to support your own club please take off the rose coloured spectacles and realise that the referees and their assistants are closer to the action than you are and probably have a greater knowledge of the laws.
It would help with numbers if retired players, whether by age or injury, could be encouraged to take up the whistle.
So let us all give our support to the Peter Morgans of our game.
