    Ha ha. I've definitely never been a scrum half. Don't think I've ever played 80 mins either

    Awesome. I refereed a game last year where the Dad came on for the last 10 minutes - he had always wanted to play in the same side as his boy.

    As if that wasn't enough, the Dad (a big bloke playing Prop) scored in the last play of the game. I think I've got a mate for life.

    I played a Senior game with both my lads - different games - 3 years apart when they were both 17 ish (if that makes sense)

    The last one (a game in our 2nds) I had the intention of 15 minutes on the wing (as you do). I was 48 years old. Being the only replacement I thought it too much to expect I'd only get 15 minutes. Lo and behold about 10 minutes in I had to come on. As stood on the wing watching the ineptitude inside me I slowly made my way in one position every 15 minutes until I was back at 10 (where I belong)

    Anyway we got thumped and I got stamped on.

    My abiding memory was the referee's PMB which lasted about a minute before I decided I'd had enough and went for a jog/stretch round the pitch. He was still going when I got back about 2 minutes later. FFS

    It is a nice memory to have.
