SA RUGBY PANEL
|Favourite food:||Chicken Schnitzel|
Played at school until I started refereeing in my first year at varsity.
Why You chose to become a referee:
I still wanted to contribute to the game as I was too small to make it as a player. What better way to serve the game than with the whistle.
