The Rugby Ref hasn't had much rugby over the festive period. In fact The Rugby Ref has only had one game in the whole of December. All the rest have been called off due to the adverse weather. One just as The Rugby Ref arrived at the ground after driving for 45 minutes.
The one game that was on, was a bit one sided, but highly enjoyable. In fact the losing team seemed to enjoy themselves more than the winning team! Very good food and hospitality as well. The ref's room is not bad. It is small but comfortable with a lock on the door. No separate showers or toilet, so this would normally rate a score of 5 out of 10.
Unfortunately The Rugby Ref had to share this "compact and bijou" room with another rugby ref. Nothing wrong with that I hear you cry and The Rugby Ref agrees, however two club touch judges also insisted on using it. Now bear in mind there wasn't enough room to swing a cat to start with and you can tell there will be problems with four grown men trying to get changed in there. In fact everyone had to get changed in relays. This meant The Rugby Ref's routine was upset, and The Rugby Ref is a creature of habit, so for that reason this changing room gets a 4 out of 10.
