You Go Girl

Hats off to Sara Cox who made history at the weekend by becoming the first Doris to referee a men’s National League One match –

In her youth, Sara played rugby alongside her male peers for Cullompton in Devon before finding a girls’ side and winning county and regional honours. She even had a couple of trials to play for England. Now, at just 25, she has made history by becoming the first woman to join the RFU’s match officials team.

Good luck to her – how long before she gets the chance of taking charge of a Premiership match?

She’s certainly a lot easier on the eye than most of the blokes who reffed us – and will definitely know the rules a lot better!
