I have heard on the radio today that referee steve Walsh has had his contract ripped up.

He had previously been ignored to ref any games in the first month of the super 14 and has also been stood down from refing any 6 nations games.

Not sure why this has all happened but if any one can find a story please link it in here.

OH man - he was the best we had (which is really sad)! Bryce Lawrence was supposedly the best, but he is shit!

Never was a big fan of him, but never been a much of a fan of any ref. He seemed to spend to long doing his hair before each game though.

He turned up to a international referrees conferance with a hangover.
He was told to leave, when he went back in the afternoon, he was told to go back to NZ, and all his upcomng ref duties had been revoked.

Apparently hes moving to Japan (presumely to ref).
Its a pity that someone whos such a good ref has been used
as a punching bag by the the "ole boys club".
I reckon they're getting back at him for the NZ backlash against Wayne Barnes.

Shades of Keith Murdoch! Way to back him up NZRFU and the NZ reffing fraternity, talk about gutless! I remember one of the AB's deeply regretting the fact that the team didnt stand behind Keith Murdoch and threaten to leave when he was ordered to leave.

Tell you what, the Aussies wouldnt have let this happen if he was one of theirs...
