Show him respect but there’s no need to call Nigel Owens ‘Sir’

first_imgWednesday Dec 12, 2018 Show him respect but there’s no need to call Nigel Owens ‘Sir’ He’s known as the king of one-liners so when Oxford and Cambridge met in the annual Varsity Match a few days back, Nigel Owens did not disappoint as he came out with another comment that led to a few chuckles in the commentary box and perhaps the disapproval of those in west Wales.ADVERTISEMENTFormer Saracens and London Irish full-back Ben Ransom starred for Oxford as they won the match convincingly with five tries to one, for a 38-16 scoreline.The win for Oxford was their 60th, as they moved within three of Cambridge’s 63 overall wins.Referee Owens took charge of the contest, following in the footsteps of fellow Welshman Derek Bevan, who oversaw the Varsity match in 1993. “So many of the greatest referees have officiated at the Varsity match at Twickenham,” Owens said before the match.Midway through the first half he took an opportunity to have a drink, when his usual wit kicked into play.Of course, respect for the referee is part and parcel of what makes rugby great so it’s commonplace that players call referee’s ‘Sir’. And long may it continue.ADVERTISEMENTYou can watch a replay of the full match belowOwens was also in fine form recently when France hosted South Africa in Paris.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Funnies Related Articles 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: American reacts to brilliant Nigel… 29 WEEKS AGO Video of John Kirwan apologising while wearing… 29 WEEKS AGO Simon Zebo reveals how ‘absolute lunatic’… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
