Chris Busby reached another significant milestone in his refereeing career at the weekend when he refereed his first Senior Men’s International match.
Busby, a member of the IRFU High Performance Development Panel, was the man in the middle for the Spain v Portugal game in the final round of the 2020 Rugby Europe Championship, which was postponed from last March.
Spain enjoyed a hard fought 25-11 victory over their neighbours Portugal in a keenly-contested game at the Estadio Central UCM in Madrid.
This is the latest in a series of high-profile games for Busby who is quickly establishing himself as a well respected referee at the top levels of the game.
He returns to action in the Guinness PRO14 in the coming weeks.
