In this, my fifth year of refereeing rugby union in New Zealand, I’m often asked about how far I want to go. I don’t answer the way I would like “No further than Otahuhu, thanks” – but it leads me to wonder how far I do go to referee? How many km’s will me and my trusty car Heikki go? How far will I travel by bus, train, plane and shoelace express?
I’ll keep a log of my games, and anything else I feel like besides, and come the end of the year, we will see how far I’ve gone.
