The Whistle Blower
Summer is just around the corner. Winter is winding down fast. In the back of our minds is the thought of another year of rugby. Grant Fox famously said that players should never retire at the end of a rugby season. It was his experience that far too many retirements in September and October led to years of regret by otherwise fit young rugby players who yearned for the game.

So I encourage everyone who was involved this year, from College Coaches and Managers right through to beaten and bruised Rep players to delay any thought of retirement until February next year. It’s amazing how your feelings can change after a few months of touch rugby and beach cricket. The longing for peak fitness and the camaraderie of rugby will come back.

The Wairarapa Bush Club Rugby Scene is undoubtedly getting stronger and stronger. This year’s Senior and Senior Third competitions were the best I have seen. The College rugby scene is exciting and displaying players full of promise and potential. The outlook for local rugby in 2015 is great.

And if you do decide that you can’t stand another year of team training and muddy gear, the Rugby Referees Association provides another avenue for you to remain in the game and get another few years out of those new boots you bought last winter. And you only have to look at the playing history of many of our newest Referees to see that there is genuinely a place in Refereeing for those Top Notch players who were once our club scene heroes. So put a mark on your calendar for 1 February next year – RUGBY. And if you decide it time to stop playing, join the referee ranks and stay involved.
