Alain Rolland Talks To IrishRugby.ie

Alain Rolland had one more big refereeing appointment on his agenda. The Dubliner made history by becoming the first Irishman to referee a Rugby World Cup final in November and he wrapped up his international campaign last week with the Argentina v Scotland Test match in Buenos Aires. But would the Budweiser Tag ‘Challenge Donncha’ match at Old Belvedere RFC on Wednesday top everything?

Top Irish referee Alain Rolland talks to IrishRugby.ie about Budweiser Tag, the benefits of playing Tag rugby, the current standing of Irish referees globally, being appointed to the big games, the use of the television match official and the ‘challenge’ of refereeing Donncha O’Callaghan!
