Cheers, Willie Roos!

Well, it’s sad that it had to happen this way, but I for one won’t shed a tear that Willie Roos will no longer be seen on the local reffing circuit.

Roos announced his retirement today, as a result of an incident in Kimberley two weeks ago that saw him doused in brannas by a disgruntled Griquas fan. The irony of the situation is that Roos was probably correct to card two Griquas players in that game.

What is not really debatable, though, is that Roos has failed to impress as a referee from the day he first picked up the whistle and that allegations of Blue Bulls bias have followed him around like a bad stink – in no small part owing to a close family relationship to one of the Bulls players. Apart from anything else, he has been allowed to referee at national level for three years while seemingly never being taken to task for the piss-poor officiating that has been his stock in trade throughout.

Andre Watson, of course, has called on the public to show greater respect to the officials. That one cuts both ways, Watson. Clean up your own house and provide us with officials worthy of the respect you seek, or don’t be too surprised if the Piet van Zyl’s of the world take the law into their own hands.

Sharksworld would like to wish Willie Roos all the best and hope that whatever he does after rugby, he is more successful at it…

  • Rob is right, it does cut both ways.

    So Andre should make public what disciplinary procedures they have in place for refs and publicly announce actions they have taken.

    “while seemingly never being taken to task for the piss-poor officiating thta has been his stock in trade throughout.”

    It would appear your glee in bashing this one lowered your spelling skills to that of Willie’s officiating :lol:

  • The irony of the situation is that Roos was probably correct to card two Griquas players in that game.

    Rob – he apparently did not douse Roos because of the yellows..he approached Roos after the game and wanted to know why Roos made a decision on not giving the line out or something…Roos apparently said in no friendly manner that he does not owe him or any one else for that matter any explanations on his decisions and that he refuses to answer..when the guy wanted to know why – he ignored him..

  • Honestly not going to lose sleep about this – Roos has been terrible at times, and only slightly better than terrible the rest of the time.

    I agree with Andre that refs should be afforded more respect, especially at amateur level, but this ‘oke’ was so far out of his depth he needed scuba gear.

    Oh, and the whole coke affair had nothing to do with his officiating in the game – it was because he behaved like a wanker after the game.

    If Andre if concerned about the wasted money being spent on ref training then maybe somebody should whisper in his ear that it takes a very logn time to polish a turd. Wille Roos (and JC Fortuin before him) were simply not up to scratch.

    Yeah and if we believe the arsehole’s lie that he was drinking Coke only and that he was innocent then we are gullible enough to believe that he was nice and poilte when asking Roos a question.

    Exactly, He is probably more concerned about his mates actually believing that it was only coke in the drink.

    Which self respecting Pretorian (oxy-moron) goes to rugby and only drinks coke from his glass?
