Comedy gold: Nigel Owens catches the ball as players go to smash him

Welsh referee Nigel Owens had yet another classic moment on the pitch on Saturday when he caught a pass from Ospreys scrum half Sam Davies.

Owens was refereeing his 175th game in the Guinness Pro 14 between Ospreys and Dragons when a loose pass was thrown straight towards him.

The 47-year-old couldn’t get out of the way of the ball and decided to catch it, which brought a smile to both players and fans at the Liberty Stadium.

The surrounding players pretended to tackle the Welsh referee, who joked about his handling skills on Twitter after the game and the Ospreys responded by offering him a playing contract!
