    Not it sure what the logic behind it is .
    I think this is a confusion. The whole difference between a TJ and an AR is that the AR has been officially appointed

    but only in RFU land and some other exotic places.

    Tell me, if one of the ARs doesn't show (traffic, etc), does the other AR have regular AR powers? Who runs the other line?

    And at what level pray tell, does it become adviseable or a requirement to have an AR (a luxury in most cases I suspect) rather than just having to rely on the informal appointment of a TJ.

    Wales , Exotic? I heard our beautiful country describe in many ways but never exotic!

    Here If one AR fails to attend and a replacement is available a quick call to the office will, usually, get the replacement made official.

    If it was me I think it would work out better all round if WB became the referee, and I would act as his AR !

    WB would also have to be appointed, even if at the last minute, so CR could be appointed as the AR at the same time.
    Be reasonable - do it my way.
