James Jones Referee

It's unusual to be tagged in a post on FB by a referee but that's exactly what James Jones, our referee against Cilfynydd yesterday did. Not that long ago James was one of the top referees in Wales but then a serious knee injury curtailed his career. He then came back refereeing Rugby League. Now after a long time out of the game he is back doing what he loves best, as the man in charge of our game against Cilfynydd RFC yesterday. It was his first game back and reading his comments on how it went, he seems to have come through the game ok. He has some nice words to say about our Coach Gareth Nicholas and our style of play. ( one comment on FB calls Gareth a genius. Better widen those doors to the Clubhouse ) Llanharan RFC wish you the best of luck in the future James and hope all goes well for you.

"Well after a hard tough emotional few months…. JJR finally got back on the field today!

It’s been an emotional rollercoaster and I can’t give enough gratitude to Rayner Davies for being right by my side encouraging me through training and some dark days.

@cilfynydd.rfc v @llanharanrfc - a pleasure to officiate. A great game played in good spirit by both teams.

Gareth Nicholas - still got a massive rugby brain and clear the way Llanharan played today you have a huge influence! Exciting and spun the ball wide! - What a true gent and great rugby servant.

Credit to Cilfynydd for a spirited performance and a great welcome pre and post match!!

Knee held well!

Rehab continues. But JJR finally back!!
