Friday Funnies - The Ref organising the lineout

Friday Funnies - The Ref organising the lineout

Our funny clip for today comes from a few months back, and the match between Gloucester and the London Wasps.

As you'll more than likely know, we like to trawl through archives of rugby footage, finding comical and interesting clips to share with you here, on a Friday in particular.

We had a laugh over this short clip, as you could be forgiven for thinking you're watching a training ground session prematch as the coach shouts instructions at his young hooker.

The referee even goes as far as shouting when the right moment is for hooker Rob Webber to throw the ball in.

They've always said ref's have the power to make top players feel like schoolboys. Well, this pretty much exemplifies that.

Have a good weekend.

On the topic of the referee, and with ongoing complaints and comments about them 'ruining rugby' or not acting in the 'spirit of the game'.A quick read:http://www.rugby365.com/opinion/oracle/1448340.htm

in regards to anonymous article that was posted 2nd comment.http://www.rugby365.com/opinion/oracle/1448340.htmyou have interpreted it in the wrong way, but you have still managed to make a point out of this...we arent complaining about the referees making mistakes, we HAVE accepted that (although we whinge alot) and know that its impossible to be perfect. i think the general complaint is now the referees over-involving themselves in the game to try cut out every single little mistake, and it interrupts the fluency of the game. im from the southern hemisphere and by all means its not just northerners, and in fact, i love nothing more than a tight and tough battle between the forwards, but its when the referees go by the book too much and regardless of the situation, and many times play could just continue.referees are a big part of rugby, but the best referees, are the ones you hardly realise are there.

No, it's not Tony Spreadbury. Don't know who it IS tho. Shame there wasn't a longer reaction from Moore in the clip, funny nonetheless.
