    Totally agree with Menace & Phil.

    Also:
    1. make sure you are one of the first to the breakdown. If you are dawdling and moving slowly from the previous phase of play (and this does happen to new refs as they aren't 100% confident where they need to be) then you'll miss a lot of the action, and

    2. have a think about your positioning at the tackle. If you are in too close (new refs can tend to be overly ball focussed) there's a danger you'll miss arriving players.

    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    You're completely right, I was consciously ball-focused. I realised this at lineouts particularly when I knew I wasn't monitoring the offside lines at all, but certainly I was trying to ensure that tacklers released and BCs release the ball.

    I've got another game in 8 days, so preparing the mental images to help out next time, I'm sure it will be cleaner.

    Slightly aside, but from my experience at U15 level and slightly older, I found that the best way to deal with mouthy players or constant offenders was to take them to one side and then be positive. Boost them by saying 'I can see you're one of the best players on the pitch. Don't spoil the game by mouthing off / offending all the time. Show everybody - me, your teammates, your coaches, those watching, just how good you can be.' It worked (nearly) every time.
