View Full Version : Congratulations Wayne Barnes
I think congratulations are in order for Wayne Barnes as he was yesterday (6th April) announced as the sixth full-time referee on the RFU's books.
At 25 he's the youngest ever to go pro (after becoming the youngest ever RFU referee at 21). I know he has links to many members of these forums, through the London and Gloucester Societies in particular, so congratulations Wayne.
Simon - are you going to post the picture of you receiving your trophy from Wayne at the society dinner?
Good idea, now if only I knew how, give me a few minutes and I'll have figured it out!
Here is the photo that OB talks of:
Having just taken a closer look at that, what six or seven pints makes you look like! :eek:
We're both grinning like Cheshire cats and would appear to be propping each other up!
Oh yes, and by God how short I look - damn Wayne Barnes for being a lock!
lol, Yes congrats to Barnsy, next stop IRB.
Yes, many congratulations to you Wayne. An excellent referee, always got time for the Community refs too, great after-dinner speaker (you are always welcome back in Hampshire), and so young too !
One of rugby's nice guys - and I loved how he shut Jonno up at London Irish earlier this season.
The legal professions loss is rugby's gain !
