Springbok coach Peter de Villiers and national teams manager Andy Marinos will meet Paddy O’Brien, the International Rugby Board (IRB) manager of referees, to discuss matters of common concern.

Rugby 365 reports that the scheduled meeting is set to take place in Johannesburg on August 28.

“This is an opportunity to discuss issues with the IRB, face-to-face,” said Marinos.

“There are a number of technical matters we’d like to raise but there are two issues we want to straighten out.

“We’d like to discuss our request to meet referees in the company of opposition coaches before Test matches, and correct the suggestions that we have failed in our duties to provide refereeing reports to the IRB.

“Let me categorically deny that. We have submitted all the required reports to date and will submit a report on refereeing at the end of the Tri-Nations – as the tournament manual requires.

“We have enormous sympathy for referees who in some cases have had to manage blowing as many as five different sets of laws this season – it’s only natural that we’d want to talk to them about interpretations in such a complex environment,” Marinos added.

  • One thing you know about politicians is that when they say “categorically deny” then they are probably talking kak.

    IRB Says Boks haven’t sent any reports.

    Boks Say they categorically deny THAT.

    BUT will submit the reports on refereeing AFTER the 3Ns. :???:

    Marinos you are talking kak dude. If you guys had gone the xtra mile and submitted reports during the comp then MAYBE something could have been done about it. Don’t bitch and moan and then not submit reports until after the horse has bolted. (competition has been lost)

    But I agree wholeheartedly. I just hope they can put forward a strong case, since they are taking the correct route now.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 7) : That’s it. Funny though the dictionary translates correctly from Afr to English, but not the other way around. That will be my dictionary, which could be older than I am. Now, let’s not get into that. :razz:

    I would be interested. Or is that how you came up with caw?
