“Scrum-halves are always the worst” – Wayne Barnes names the FIVE hardest players to referee


Legendary rugby referee Wayne Barnes has ranked some of the trickier players he had to run the rule over down the years.

#5. Joe Marler (England)

BARNES SAID: ” “He was always a funny one on the field in nice way. You’d be trying to tell him something serious and he’d just want to have a laugh and a joke.

“But he does bring a smile to your face. That is what is unique about our sport, the interaction between players and refs and refs and coaches. It does show our sport off in a good light.”
