    The Referee is turning 21, has been refereeing for 6 years has been on national panel for 3 years, the referee asked for more field training. I asked if it was over training but the referee said no. ???? (pressure to stay fit and sharp, I hope injuries will stay away). Thank you for the input !!!

    Given he is on NP is this drop off in fitness not something that is monitored/discussed with the great and the good at the RFU?

    I thought the NP referees went to Twickenham 2 days a week? That said I only know the two from South Yorkshire and at least one of them is an inveterate liar!

    My current training split:
    Monday - upper body work plus a 20-30 minute session on the concept 2 rower
    Tuesday - lower body day, same C2 rower session
    Wednesday - sprint work
    Thursday - upper body day, interval work on the rower
    Friday - lower body, plus recovery work. Might be an easy 20 minutes on a bike, or might involved a light sled of some kind.
    Saturday - game day
    Sunday - rest.

    I am fit all year around and overall feel really good. You have to keep working on the fitness, as when the fitness is good the mental aspect become easier.
