    How do you feel and how does high intensity work impact you? I would suggest a partially collapsed lung would make it very difficult for you to be as active and mobile around the pitch as you usually are. Would you be happy being behind the game, having difficulty recurring from a sprint phase etc?

    Only you know how you feel, which is more important than a diagnosis. But be honest with yourself about whether you would do you or the players justice in your current state (which is probably still twice as fast/fit as I am!)

    It would be interesting to know how long you've had this condition.

    My point is, how many games have you done with a collapsed lung?

    Surely the main question is whether you stay with a fiancee who has a different perspective on rugby to you?
    Be reasonable - do it my way.

    I saw SS this Saturday on the sideline. Trust me, his lungs were in fine fettle.

    That's my normal game volume. No effort required

    She's incredibly supportive. Just kinda health obsessed. In fairness to her, I have a habit - you might have picked up on it - of downplaying health issues.

    That thought had occurred to me. I find out Tuesday.

    Thanks for all the answers. One of the refs in my Society has had two in the last couple of years so he was able to talk me through it. And then remove me from the schedule for he is the Assignments Officer

    What advice would you give to a fellow referee asking you the same question?
