Credit where credits due, great reffing

Mr Ridley, he controlled the game as if it was his 200 game not 7th.
I had my doubts when it was announced, such a big always quick game between two brilliant teams.
But he was calm, spoke to all that needed to know, and I don't think put a foot wrong.

Well done sir, may it continue.

Decent showing. I though he was generous in allowing us so long to set the lineout drive, and not sure the scrums were that well controlled, but we've seen much worse from far more experienced refs.

I think Sir had a very decent game considering he's not had much Premiership experience.
It's always easy to be sceptical of a young inexperienced ref but credit where its due.

I groaned pre match when the commentator said his age and experience. I was wrong to - he was very, very good.

Just a farm team from Devon.
We know who we be!

Former scrum half in the Tigers academy, had to retire due to shoulder injury. Persuaded to take up reffing by Chris White. Enjoyed his officiating particularly when he marched Wasps back ten for back chat! I predict a bright future for this young man!

The last time Mr Ridley reffed us was the shoelace gate against Saints at home last season so I was a tad deflated hearing he was reffing us at Ricoh. He was very good. Well controlled, kept game flowing, clear Comms with the players & clear decisions. Very confident young referee with a good future ahead of him

We have similar praise over on the Wasps forum. Hell of a job to have both sets of fans impressed.
