Reason you started refereeing?
I started refereeing because it got me out of night study when I was in Yr 10 at boarding school.
Best on-field rugby highlights?
- Refereeing two Premier grand finals in Brisbane
- Refereeing a great game between Manly and University in the Sydney finals last year. Any game decided by a field goal after the siren is going to be exciting.
- Assistant Refereeing in front of 40,000 loud fans at Suncorp Stadium
Best off-field rugby highlights?
When refereeing at the Sanix tournament in Japan they rolled out a 350Kg Tuna at the opening function. It was impressive to watch the chefs chop it to pieces.
The hospitality of rugby hosts around the world is awesome. We are very fortunate to be able to travel around and meet such wonderful people.
Occupation and interests outside of rugby?
I am a rowing coach, sports administrator and teacher in training. I am also a lucky husband and proud father.
Best refereeing advice you’ve been given?
Remember that at what ever level, it is always just two teams of 15 playing rugby!
