Joel Jutge retires

Sources close to Refblog advise that Joel Jutge has been beaten by injury and has retired from refereeing.

Can only find it briefly here:

Sad news – apart from the terrible plastic whistle he used, he was a great referee. Met him at a Heineken Cup game at the Madj Stad a few eyars ago when I was a lowly clip board operator. Terribly nice chap.

I wish him well in his new role with Joel Dume in developing future referees in France.

    Now that is a shame. Didn’t get everything right – who does? but was fair & consistent & that’s all you can ask. Could have been one of the greats given a few more years. No justice that he’s gone & Walsh is back!
