    Nigel Owens was born on the 18 June 1971 and raised in Mynyddcerrig; a small traditional Welsh speaking village approximately 12 miles from Carmarthen, in south west Wales. As a keen sportsman, Owens played Full Back for the school rugby team, but after missing a crucial match-winning conversion, the teacher made a tongue in cheek comment that he should consider becoming a referee. It was a half joking throw away comment which could have been instantly forgotten, but by happy coincidence it would change his life, because Owens thought to himself Why not? ...

    England V Australia

    Thread Starter: Pegleg

    Well half time 3-17 So far so good for Wales' interests. Nothing against England but knowing the last game was a little less important would ease the nerves.

I was happy that...

    Players going past the ball at breakdown

    Thread Starter: Gracie

    Is this really allowed? Watching this WC I'm struck by the way the southern hemisphere teams in particular go past the ball at the breakdown. In part this is the tactic of flopping over the breakdown to stop the opposition competing, but all too often it involves running round in front of the...

    Tackling the support player.

    Thread Starter: Balones

    A couple of scenarios:- 1.) A ball carrier has a player latched onto him to provide extra weight. A tackler comes across and ploughs into both players and brings them both to ground. He makes contact with the support player first. 2.) As above but the tackler tackles the 'latch' and it is the...

    The umpire

    Has Nigel made a mistake?

    Thread Starter: The umpire

    Scotland v SA today. Pieterson turns the Scotland player upside down and lets him land on his head. TMO eventually talks Nigel into a penalty, just a penalty, when it looks to fit all the requirements of a straight red. Sam Warburton must be shaking his head in disbelief. Thoughts?
