Yesterday’s officiating crew at the James River Xmas 7s, outside of Richmond. The new Xmas 7s jerseys were great (thanks, Chilly and Love Rugby Company!). Also, a thanks to Margy, who got more than enough referees for the day (a rarity!) as well as arranged referee coaching. And… thanks to Jake Porter who hosted the referees’ post tournament gathering.
