Kelvin Deaker retires

Deaker puts away his whistle

Tuesday, 11 November 2008

New Zealand rugby has lost the services of another frontline referee with Kelvin Deaker announcing his retirement.


Deaker, 43, refereed 177 first-class matches, including 23 tests, since 1996, and he officiated at last year’s World Cup.

His decision to put the whistle away follows the retirements this year of Paul Honiss and Lyndon Bray.
