That said if I'm needed I'm happy to help - but it seems logical timing.

    Indeed. I'll be 61 in November and still running around (sometimes not in circles)

    that's very flattering OB, but TBH I'm not sure I could keep up with these younger players - I can do 5K in about 30 minutes, 10K in a tad over an hour, but I'm not sure I could keep up with any of the backs over 50 metres :-)

    Good on you......and good on the Union that allows you to.

    In IRFUland it's compulsory retirement at age 60 for 'Branch' referees.
