Emirates Hosts IRB Master Class for Leinster Referees

Fresh from refereeing the recent Six Nations clash with France at the Aviva Stadium, International Rugby Board elite panel referees Steve Walsh, Wayne Barnes and Greg Garner took time out to take part in a refereeing workshop, hosted by Emirates Airline, at Old Wesley RFC.

Elite refs from the recent Ireland v France game: Wayne Barnes, Steve Walsh and Greg Garner with Margaret Shannon, Country Manager for Emirates in Ireland

Thirty aspiring amateur referees from a number of Leinster clubs were taken through their paces by the professionals and given coaching in areas such as latest laws, big game preparation and management, training and diet. Those in attendance also had the opportunity to quiz the IRB men on what it takes to earn and maintain a place on the IRB elite panel and what it’s like to have a career in international refereeing.

Emirates has sponsored the IRB international referees panel since 2006, a partnership that sees the Fly Emirates logo proudly displayed on officials clothing across the Six Nations, Tri Nations, international tours, U19 and U21 internationals and the IRB Sevens Series.
