“Absolutely brilliant” – Everyone is saying the same thing about referee Luke Pearce

Everyone is saying the same thing about Luke Pearce as the Premiership final referee wore a special jersey for the showcase match at Twickenham

The normal Gallagher blue, the shirt features Doddie Weir tartan down the sides.

One fan wrote: “Brilliant little touch from the officials wearing Doddie Weir tartan,”

A second commented: “Love the Doddie themed referee shirt. Luke Pearce looking good.”

Another said: “No idea why the referee’s have Doddie tartan on but I love it.”

Doddie Weir named his dream team


Gavin Hastings (Scotland): “Consistently outstanding for both Scotland and the Lions. Helped me a lot when the game turned professional.”

Tony Stanger (Scotland): “Probably Scotland’s greatest ever finisher. He was key as we won the 1990 Grand Slam.”

Jonah Lomu (New Zealand): “He took the 1995 World Cup by storm. There were plenty of players who were six foot five and nearly nineteen stone, but none I knew who could run the 100m sprint in 11 seconds.”


Alan Tait (Scotland): “He seemed to have the uncanny ability to always be in the right place at the right time. Then you realised that was because he was pushing opponents into areas where they had no space to work. He was also the tightest man in the world.”

Tana Umaga (New Zealand): “Scored twice against us. Like with Lomu, we really struggled to contain him.”
