The Rugby Ref's changing room, No 24.

Sunday morning enjoyable Under 17's game for The Rugby Ref.

The changing room was basic (to put it mildly).  Small room, nothing but a bench and a couple of coat hooks.  Still muddy from Saturday's match, litter on the floor, needs a lick of paint, needs cleaning.

The Rugby Ref gives this room a disappointing 3 out of 10.

The Rugby Ref's changing room, No 23.

An out of county appointment on Saturday for The Rugby Ref, down to rural Berkshire.  Nice old club with very good facilities.

The referee's room was small, but clean and well maintained, with a mirror.  Although The Rugby Ref had to share the players showers, they were the best showers of the season, hot and plenty of power to every shower head.  much better than the dribble of water that some club's showers produce.  They were also some of the first showers The Rugby Ref has come across, that were clearly designed with the 2nd row in mind, rather than the scrum half !!

The Rugby Ref gives this room 7 out of 10.

The Rugby Ref's changing room, No 22.

On a very cold Tuesday night The Rugby Ref was Assistant Referee, running touch, at a level 5, U20 county cup match, which was held about 75 miles away from The Rugby Ref's own county.

A very nice club with excellent facilities.  The match officials changing room was large and warm.  It had it's own showers, toilet, sinks and mirrors.  The team of three were provided with a key for the door so that we could secure our own kit.

The Rugby Ref has no hesitation in giving this room 10 out of 10.
