Updated on 9/3/2012 9:18:32 PM

Tell us a little about yourself: age, place of birth, current occupation.

—I was born in England in 1940 something and have been associated with the game of Rugby Football for close to 60 years. I have played the game, refereed the game and coached the game, to players and to Match Officials. I am a National Referee Performance Reviewer and the Chairman of the National Referee Evaluation Committee for USA Rugby. I am also a Vice President of the FRRA, responsible for Referee Operations & Evaluations. The FRRA desperately needs Referee Assessors and Referee Coaches. If you feel that you are able to put something back into the game in regard to these positions, I am readily available to talk with you. xpubman50@aol.com or 407 460 6723

What is you background as a rugby player?
