Referee Nigel Owens tells off 30 grown men

Leinster and Scarlets played to a 17-17 draw on Friday night at the Parc y Scarlets in what was an ill-tempered game. In the first half referee Nigel Owens felt things were getting out of hand, so he took control of things in rather unique fashion.

Leinster flanker Sean O’Brien made what looked to be a high tackle after the whistle, sparking a free-for-all on the halfway line that took some time to calm down. The tackle was bad, but the scuffle could easily have been avoided had certain players not got involved.

Owens, upon getting no assistance from his two assistants, chose to have a chat to both teams, calling them to him in rather comical fashion for a good old fashioned telling off.

“You’re adults, you’ll be treated like it, as long as you act like it,” was the message from Owens to the 30 players on the pitch.

It is good to see a referee take control of things, basically bringing these professional players back to grassroots level and making them realise that at the end of the day, the ref is the guy in charge out there. One almost expected them to say ‘Yes sir’ after that.

A while back we saw referee Wayne Barnes show his authority in a similar way as he told off two of England rugby’s most senior players, Martin Corry and Steve Borthwick.

It’s good to see, and moments like these reiterate why rugby’s values will make sure it maintains its reputation as a fantastic game, played with respect by gentlemen, who just happen to be aggressive.

Do you think Owens was spot on, or was it a bit much making such a scene?



  • What I did not like was how players began to leave the circle before he was done talking, or how some stayed outside the circle thinking they didn't need to be in it. He is the referee, show him a little respect. Don't act like ansy grade school kids who think they know better. just listen what he has to say, it wasn't even that long.

  • I was at the game. It was a cheap shot by O'Brien that Nigel and his assistants missed. Not really their fault as they were giving a penalty 30 yards up the field, but it seemed a bit odd to bring in a lot of players who weren't involved. Just tell the captains to sort it out.

  • I like Nigel Owens, and I'm glad he did what he did here. It should be said, though, that he rarely misses out on asserting his authority. That's not really a bad thing, mind you.

    Aside from the few who were leaving early and all, it was good to see the players listening and not talking to the sir or pointing fingers at one-another.

  • I think it was a bit much to be calling everyone in. Refs can barely get the attention of a handful of players, let alone all 30.

    These kinda happenings can buzzkill a game. Instead, the ref should have given a stern warning to the skippers of each team.

    Any more nonsense? Sin bin away

    By Blogger ReJLoRd, at December 06, 2010 2:04 am  

  • A buzzkill? As opposed to punch-ups all match? I like a bit of fisticuffs every now and then, but this isn't hockey (nothing against hockey, though). Rugby prides itself in respect and discipline, and when the referee speaks, the players listen.

    I think Owens did well to put an end to funny business which would've been more of a "buzzkill" than a one-minute lecture.

    Nigel Owens is the biggest attention whore ever.
    He needs to get over himself, and stop trying to be the centre of attention. No one goes to the game to see the ref.
    I agree in prinicple with the ref telling the players involved in a scuffle to cool down, but to call both entire teams together like this?
    Too much.

    Owens to me is the worst kind of ref, obsessed with making himself the centre of attention.
    An anonymous ref is the best kind of ref.

    By Anonymous Jono, at December 06, 2010 4:52 am  

  • Yeah, a ref who goes unseen/unheard during play is the best kind of ref. But play had already been disrupted.

    I think that most rugby players respect the referee, so yeah, I imagine that after all that, they knew Owens was having none of the afters business.

    I'd rather have a referee like Owens who stamps out play not having to do with the game versus a referee like Bryce Lawrence who inserts himself into general play too often. Owens at least lets the game flow.

    It's a high intensity, violent sport. A bit of 'Hows your mother?' everynow and then is part and parcel of the game.

  • This is pure amateur dramatics from Owens. He's prone to it; novel refereeing techniques to assume control of a fractious encounter. And yet, with both teams at his beck and call, he comes out with

    “You’re adults, you’ll be treated like it, as long as you act like it".

    Who would, and who should, take this man seriously? Even the most (seemingly) petulant of rugby players would laugh this off. If you want to sing from your pulpit, try "friends, ruckers, countrymen" or its ilk, not this bull-!

    If Owens cannot stick to tried, tested and approved game management skills as a referee, he can take his mouth to some backwater montessori, where at least the kids are still innocent enough to show him pity.

    I used to have respect for referees that bordered on religous admiration. Since cards came out refs have been more and more involved with deciding the outcome of the game.

    Rugby's a physical game, and that's part of the beauty of it. Sometimes things will inevitably flare up, but this was nothing but handbags.
    Speak to the captains by all means, but don't make a bloody song and dance routine out of it.

  • Personally i find owens a great ref....he is not afraid to 'talk' to players....and is generally not so whistle happy as others, BECAUSE HE TALKS....

    ...it winds me up when refs say 'no' at a ruck then blow the whistle,..and you get 8 players all looking puzzled wondering if it was them....nigel owens generally tries to keep the game flowing....

    As for this....well, he missed everyone i.e the cause of the punch up and who was a swinger in it....so he basically said 'lads cool it'

    Put it this way, if 2 people start fighting on the pitch, the referee calls them both over and the captains and has a word...sometimes offering no card....he didnt see who was involved...it looked to be almost everybody...so he got them all in...

    Good move imo..

    But in reality, there is no need to swear....

    ....if some posh bloke gets his foot stamped on and shouts 'oh bother' there is no reason why a 'non' posh person should swear...

    its a way of 'expressing' ones self, however there is no need to use language which would be deemed unacceptable to use around children, and let me tell you 'swear words are not acceptable around children'

    Rugby is watched by all years...now, i know myself i have uttered a rude word or two whilst on the pitch, and off and personally id rather f**k or s**t was not the first word which comes to my lips when i stump my toe...but it is....and other people may find it offensive...i've played a game where the referee got tired of swearing and warned people, the next person who swore was sin binned....

    hey @Chris....stop being such a bigot, I am glad you think it is utterly acceptable to swear consistently in front of small children. Now you and "class war" Tom can go to games together and mutually intimidate the parents of children as well as helping them to learn how to behave like an adult...The end result is less people will involve their kids in the sport and rugby does less well.

    If you answer 'No, thats unacceptable' then you're comment above seems a little hypocritical...

    If you answer 'yes, thats perfectly acceptable, blah blah, freedom of speech, blah blah' then it is my prime example of the way the world is going....

    MY point was that we havent yet fallen into disrespecting referee's pulling them left right and centre like footballers do, however i believe if you let one thing go the whole thing will become unravelled....

    ok, if you get speared, or something else, yelling 'ah f*ck' (see John Smit as brad thorn drops him) then to have the referee penalise you is silly, but for swearing around the pitch shooting your mouth of i think its fine for the referee to tell you to zip it..

    look at cipriani having to apologise for swearing on tv after england won something (yes i know it was a long time ago..) or nonu swearing its a prime example of when and where swearing is acceptable...if the ref chooses to let it fall under 'un-sportsmanlike conduct then so be it'

Happy now? its my homage to you.

    Now whilst you appear to want to debate facebook etc, rather than swearing, or this video, i shall humour you...

    'you're completely wrong about those two. They're extremely valuable both in terms of communication and business.'

    Right....communication....I suppose you've never heard of email or a telephone before then?

    As for business....
    well...Considering at any moment on facebook the user could be tagged in a photo with their pants pulled down i somehow doubt mixing facebook and business is particularly wise....

    Personally I'm one of those people who would get a text message saying 'I just wrote you a message on your wall on facebook'....Now..if person A can take the time to write out a text message, and send it...why oh why can they not send me the message they wrote on my facebook wall....

    It is great if that is your cup of tea...but that whole 'hey i'll add you on facebook' as the end to any conversation gets a little old....

    I have a couple email accounts and a mobile...

    my mobile is always on and always with me....if you ring me and i miss it i'll text you or ring you back....if i turn my phone off its because i do not want to be disturbed....so having facebook is meaningless to me...

    @Tom....everyone is in 'finance' one way or another...so really that doesnt mean an awful lot...yes swearing occurs on a pitch however im taught to believe if someone 'offends' me on the pitch the best bet is to not shout 'f****k offf' like a whiney wee one but to either put a few extra points on the scoreboard, have a scuffle (which i dont condone) or smash them in a tackle....to reply with 'f***k off' doesnt exactly show off your great vocabulary an doesnt exactly 'hurt.' In fact you'd be better off saying 'ouch, that hurt you rotter' because you'd probably get more notice that merely cursing at someone...

  • Jimbo, the reason for me moaning about Anonymous comment posting is the obvious reason - so that the person in question can be easily addressed when being replied to. Just like now. Imagine there were 50 Jimbos? Would make things a bit challenging :) See my point now?

    Scotsdale2, the same above applies. I think the fact that I'm replying and addressing you will reinforce that point. Great choice of name btw.

    In response:

    Communication - Photographs, thoughts, news, video even.. facebook is the easiest form of communication there is (other than twitter possibly), particularly for people with family in other parts of the world. Obviously you dont have that so you can't see out the box, but for those of us who do, there's nothing easier than uploading a photo or news to facebook and having everyone see it at once, rather than having to phone or email everyone. In terms of being on the receiving end its also much easier.

    Of course I still use email and mobiles, who doesn't, but facebook is also valuable and shouldn't be discarded.

    (btw, your friends are a bit odd if they text you to tell you they've written on your wall)

    The way you dismiss it but bang on about email and mobiles makes me think that 15 years ago you would have said the same about those forms of communication. Some things take time to catch on with some people. Maybe facebook doesn't benefit you, but it benefits 500 million others so I'm sure there's a few positives behind it.

    Business - I wasn't meaning networking (although thats one big side of it, providing you dont get caught with your pants down), I was referring to business pages on there.

    Funny how this convo has nothing to do with rugby, but interesting that everyone has different opinions on technology.

    ...My personal problem with facebook is that it is intrusive...all of a sudden you have no excuse for not doing something....whatever you do somehow appears on facebook, if you dont want to be 'friends' with someone they get upset and hurt, if you do accept their 'friend request' and never talk to them (and they never talk to you) then you have someone who you do not communicate with knowing all of your business whether it be, where you were on saturday night via a photo or who you're talking to, or who's talking to you...or the other thing is they send you some horrendously tiresome 'feed my farm' 'join my mafia' or some other things that just wont ever leave you alone....

    I know it has its benefits for some people but im merely stating why it has no interest to me and why I feel the way I do about it....

    You state it benefits people, however im sure that a large majority of those people find benefits in looking up peoples friends and business and just generally being nosey.....dont argue that one, you cannot disprove that!
