    I thought that it was quite interesting that they were using national referee shirts, rather than some international ones.
    Be reasonable - do it my way.

    Saw this and thought it a really good call.

    Ouch - I've got hit in the last couple of my games around rucks and tackles, but luckily nothing requiring treatment.

    curiously I was watching a match recently where the referee suddenly got a nose-bleed. Even he did not really know why. Fortunately it stopped pretty quickly after physio intervention.

    We did have a game abandonned earlier in the season when the referee got injured and could not carry on.
    He trudg’d along unknowing what he sought,
    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.

    It wasn't at Royston Vasey was it?

    When this type of thing happens, I always wonder what kind of game the replacement Ref has. How did this one get on?

    Could be something totally unconnected to rugby eg high blood pressure.

    I was once a replacement ref .. and not starting from being an AR , I was on the touchline watching my son

    It's not a great experience, starting as it does with a run to the car to get my kit, then the changing room, then the field , while everyone else is waiting for you !

    I was playing loose-head in a L12ish game when the ref. pulled a ham-string 5mins into the game. Reversed top and took the whistle. It would be far to say I was not well prepared.

    I've done that. I was watching my son on a Sunday. After about 5 minutes one of the lads caught the referee on the ankle just above his boot. He hopped around for a bit then fell over. He had dark blue socks on so it wasn't apparent what had happened.

    It was only when he lifted his leg up nearly vertically and all the blood started running "up" his leg out of his sock. The lad had ripped open a varicose vein in his ankle!

    Anyway he was treated and went off to hospital. I was asked to referee - in my unwashed kit from the previous day (not specifically) - so I did.

    I rang the other referee that evening - he was ok.
