The Bristol referee took charge of 41 major Tests and officiated at three World Cups. He cut his teeth in the 1991 tournament with Scotland v Japan being his most high-profile game before coming to the fore in South Africa four years later.
He took charge of the Wales-New Zealand Pool game before taking on the France-Ireland quarter-final and then the most iconic World Cup final in history when the Springboks beat the All Blacks.
