I'm sure alot of you have noticed lately that referees have been getting alot of flak lately, most notably in the media. While some of this has undoubtedly justified(the breakdown and scrum have been particularly messy as of late), I find it to be a worrying trend. surely one of the ways rugby separates itself from other sports in a positive manner is through repect for the referee? I'm concerned that it may only be a matter of time before the criticism of officials moves from the commentator's box to the pitch itself. Anyone else a little worried or am I alone on this one?
