Mid Wales officials set to assist Nigel Owens in final of YFC 7's at Royal Welsh Show
Mid Wales is enjoying a period in which we have a growing number of referees making their mark and their 2012-13 season starts at the Royal Welsh Show
Wednesday (Final 2.30 approx TBC)
Nigel Owens (Hon President of YFC), I Andrew Davies & Carl Hyde
FINAL: CARMARTHENSHIRE V CARDIGANSHIRE
Andrew Davies, one of the region's top referees stated: 'This is a big one for Mid Wales referees and to be a part of a prestigous and national event such as the YFC 7's is great'.
'Mid Wales refereeing is going from strength to strength whereby this year we have five referees on the WRU list of Referees (which I think is a record for us MWDRR) and we regularly have up to 20 practising referees attending monthly training nights at Llanidloes RFC (Sept to April).
WRU Referees at present:
I Andrew Davies (Aberystwyth) - Championship WRU level.
Rhys Jenkins - Division 1 WRU level
Steve Buncombe (Llandod) - Division 3 WRU level
Carl Hyde (Newtown) - Division 4/5 WRU level
Dewi Phyllips (Aberystwyth) - Division 4/5 P WRU level
We also have a high number of new referees pushing this year for places
on the WRU list for next year as well as the more established level 2
referee's doing cracking work at District level (Mid & N Wales)'.
