    I must say, unlikely though the latter sounds, I'm not sure the former is any more certain!
    Both?

    The common cormorant or shag
    Lays eggs inside a paper bag
    The reason you will see no doubt
    It is to keep the lightning out
    But what these unobservant birds
    Have never noticed is that herds
    Of wandering bears may come with buns
    And steal the bags to hold the crumbs.
    Don't feed the pedant!

    Most of us lower level refs don't have the luxury of ARs so a new experience for many I think.

    It was interesting to a run the line for a Society ref when my son's team were playing (although my son was not there) and to test out the (non-radio) communications so I was a TJ but able to help him out with a couple of decisions where he wouldn't have trusted a non-official (but would ex-officio).

    Subsequently I did the AR online course and then landed up as AR for for Maryland State U19 final. And the team worked. The referee said it was such a relief to have people you could trust (as opposed to a coach / partisan parent on the line).

    There were a couple of times in-goal where I gave a discreet thumbs up and the whistle blew.

    Always nice to be part of a team that works well.

    Over here, at junior grades, the team gets a competition bonus point if they provide an accredited AR - usually a dad who has done the course specifically for this purpose.

    One of them quipped last Saturday that he was more valuable to the team than his son was
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    Obviously because he could manufacture a result where his son couldn't! Nice one.

    Do they see the bus coming before you throw them under it?

    I was part of a TO3 last year at the Oktoberfest 7s. We had 4 referees per pitch, 1 refereeing, 2 running touch and 1 acting as pitch marshal to keep scores etc. We all rotated jobs as well, the ref went to pitch marshal, one running touch became the ref and the PM went onto the touch line. It was nice to be able to check my call if I missed something in the middle and also if I was running touch then the ref could check with me if unsure. A good example was a blatant forward pass missed whilst I was telling a player to wind his neck in. The AR flagged me on it and a potentially game changing situation was avoided.

    Sadly, if anyone wants to see why WR struggles to enforce the "fair contest" - this is it

    And Nigel only said it 3 times!!!

    After the set call, the scrum is not square and stable and the ref is intent only on getting the ball in no matter what.
    When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It is difficult only for the others.
    It's the same when you are stupid.

    But that's his rod for his own back?!

    That is NOT NOs call...FFS it's right in front of the ref and he's looking at the 9 feeding it so he has at least a better look at it than NO.
    I find that is NO not assisting but trying to referee the game! I think that was unprofessional by NO. He knows better and should shut up. All its shown is that the AR thinks the referee is incompetent.
