"I am often called a "player's referee". In my opinion, rugby belongs to the players. I hope rugby players and coaches, as well as referees will get something out of this book. I just wish I had known all this when I began refereeing – or even when I was playing."
Ed Morrison has refereed games between all the major rugby nations, including the 1995 Rugby World Cup Final. Together with Derek Robinson, a referee with 30 years' experience at grass roots level, he provides down-to-earth advice on a range of topics from handling aggression and managing the scrum to discouraging off-side and developing confidence – without which nothing is possible.
Explaining clearly the art of refereeing and with up to 50 illustrations of typical decision-making situations, this book is essential reading for anyone who wants to referee better and gain more enjoyment out of the game.About the Author:
