If you allow the RABO I would rate both Owens and Rolland as worse than W. Barnes Esq/ but likely better than Barnes S.

In football they have a tradition that you only get 1 Final so Howard Webb, who is the countries best, has refereed his only F.A. Cup final (and World Cup final come to think of it) no matter how bad some of the others are. The fact 1 ref has done 4 or the last 5 Premiership finals is a joke and I cannot see how or why this has been allowed to happen other then more incompetence from the RFU

For those interested in the detail here are the 13 Premiership RFU refs. (Its not that many to ref 11 games a week.)

In my view Mr Barnes is far and way the best ref in the world and we Saints are jolly glad he is coming to Twickenham and we look forward to playing under his care and guidance.

They seem to assume Wayne reads our message board and think creeping round him on here will help their front row get away with standing up in every scrum............ :smt003
