Morrison to manage referees

Ed Morrison is to become the Rugby Football Union’s new elite referee manager.

Morrison, who controlled the 1995 World Cup final between South Africa and New Zealand, will succeed Colin High, who is to retire next June after six years in the post.

Morrison’s current position as RFU elite referee development officer will be filled by another former Test match official, Tony Spreadbury.

RFU elite rugby director Rob Andrew said: “Colin has been an outstanding member of the elite rugby and referee unit.

“His enthusiasm and knowledge of the game has been instrumental in English referees being widely regarded as some of the best in the world.”

Good stuff. Two excellent appointments.
