Much like Rolland, how will he manage to ruin a game this time?

Don't you mean "How will Quins and Bath ruin the Wayne Barnes show"?

At least we're geographically closer to his beloved Glaws, so we may get the odd decision!!!

Compared to Rolland and JP Doyle he's a wonder ref... still I expect that there will be 30 people on the pitch upstaging him and he'll have to make sure his presence is known with a series of bizarre decisions that stop the flow of the game.

I'm not too unhappy with Barnes - he's gone downhill over the last 3 years or so, but still reasonable.

what I am happy about is that the quins board are up in arms over his appointment...

We need all the help we can get, and he will be no help at all!!

Thanks for the game and congratulations on your 4 points. The 2 yellow cards from Barnesy didn't help us - but you have to play what's in front of you.

Wayne Barnes is a good referee. He makes fewer mistakes than most, and is consistent in his decisions, in that he referees both teams equally. There are a number of referees in the prem and elsewhere who I'm not fond of, mostly because they seem to favour one side over the other during the course of a match. Whilst WB isn't perfect, I can't claim to have seen a referee who is. He is, IMHO, a great deal better than most.

I am looking forward to a very tense and important game of rugby at the weekend.
