What got you into refereeing?

Back injury during school

Best on-field moment(s)

The anthems during the RBS 6 Nations Test between Ireland and Italy at Aviva Stadium in 2016. 

Best off-field moment(s)

Getting married to my beautiful wife Nicole and having our two children George and Olivia. 

Funniest refereeing moment

Being told I was wrong by the Hurricanes halfback in a Super Rugby game, agreeing with him and changing my decision. 

Best refereeing advice you have ever been given?

Know why you referee and back yourself!
