Barnes is a bombscare who always has to be the centre of attention on the pitch . Has ruined more games than I can remember

Youíll be unsurprised to learn that I donít agree, think itís great we have an Englishman as one of the worldís most respected refs - and while he has the odd duff game; think heís generally spot on.

Youíll also be unsurprised to hear that your ďjokeĒ change of his first name isnít rugby

Now who have I heard the expression "bomb scare" from before? I have often thought Wayne has had a game full of dodgy calls while watching him at the Stoop. Upon seeing the games on the telly I have found out why these calls have been made. He has almost completely got it right,which is more than some refs we've had.

Perhaps he knows the game better than you...

Think he is a great ref except for when he is reffing us, in which case he is really harsh on us because he is local.

I have the impression that he is a fair and accurate adjudicator of the rules, but I find his narcissistic manner deeply unattractive and I enjoy a game less when he is reffing as a result.

By the way, I am accusing Wayne Barnes of narcissism here. I'm not saying he's a "Melon Heed", but he could well find my comment insulting. Indeed I mean it as an insult. My post should be deleted.

Yeah, but it's nearly Christmas interfaith festival of the winter solstice, so let's be nice to each other, eh?

Still not forgiven him for the yellow card he gave Will Skinner against Leicester when the ball popped out the back of the tigers scrum.

In all seriousness though I would much rather Wayne than any other premiership ref for any of our games.

Oddly I agree with you - but I think itís unfair on how Barnes is now. He used to be like you say - I donít think he is anymore. Just like our own Mr Care I think heís matured into his job.

Doesn't get more narcissistic than Nigel Owens, but everyone seems to love him (myself included). Both good at their jobs, which is the main thing. The rest is just noise.

One is a little camp and quite funny and the other would not know how to crack a joke.

Disagree totally. He's got plenty of banter. For example: [youtu.be]

Seems pretty funny to me and seems to have good relationships with the players. Heís good on Rugby Tonight as well. Fair play I say, canít be easy being the easy target for every fan.

There was a period when quite a few games he reffed of ours seemed to go against us in terms of decisions, and if I remember correctly our scrum in particular seemed to keep getting on his wrong side.

I think some fans cling to this (as shown in this thread) as a reason to dislike him, but I'm not sure he was always wrong in those games, and he's clearly very well respected throughout the game as a top ref.

I think being a ref is probably one of the hardest jobs in the sport, so fair play to him for his longevity.

Agree with Blucher that he's good on Rugby Tonight as well.

With your comment in mind, I watched him closely through the Warriors-Irish game. I think you're right. It's not all-about-Wayne any more. That probably changed a while ago and I hadn't noticed. Thx.
