I had to work, yesterday, Mr Cadman
But having read the report in ' The Rugby Paper' it sounded like the students victory was far from being a  comfortable one
 
I also spoke to our water boy, this morning, and he told me that we had our chances to win the match ( obviously he is not known for his impartiality LOL )

It was a good game on Saturday end to end.
 
Both teams playing the running game of rugby. The result could have gone anyway. The main difference was the Students took the chances they had to score were as Caldy bombed a number of chances.  
 
The game was helped by having a ref who would talk to the players and let the game flow. Up and coming refs should be made to watch Andrew Vertigan ref and see how he manages the game and the players. Alot of refs have been critised on here lately but it seems when a ref has a good game people forget to tell them!

I would like to confirm the remarks made by L33 Mr Vertigan had an exceptional game and allowed two teams, intent on running the ball, to express themselves. The game flowed from end to end and was an outstanding example of running rugby. The students were very well organised, as you would expect, but Caldy pushed them all the way and in fact had most of the first half. They went in at half time 10-7 down but had several chances to take the lead. In the second half Caldy came out and ran the ball at the students eventually scoring to make the score 14-10. The students came back and regained the lead with tow well taken penalties by Drake. A further score by their Scrum half extended it to 21-14 and it seemed that they would take control. However Caldy are not ones for folding under pressure now, ask Westoe and Kendal, they scored the rty of the match inter passing down the wing for Broxson to score and Vasey to convert to level the scores. Another try by the students mid way through the half gave them back the lead 28-21. In the last 10 minutes a long period of pressure by Caldy on the Students line involving at least 16 phases was stoutly defended by the students and the game finished with both sides throwing the ball around in an effort to score a further try. The game was a credit to both sides and their coaches played in good spirit and good banter on and off the field. Again thanks to Mr Vertigan for his game management which enabled the players to express them selves.

I think Derek and Mr V would look similar in a fitted shirt.  Great likeness of Derek though

He used to be a regular here. Perhaps he gets too embarrassed by reading all the compliments Embarrassed

But why is he such an exception in the national leagues? Most of the other refs ought to be taken to watch his games and given Vetigan stem cells. Understanding the complex laws is one thing, being empathetic with 40 players and managing the game in its true spirit is quite another. A regular Premiership watcher who occasionally attends Fylde matches said of a recent N2N ref, "the trouble is that so many referees these days want to be Wayne Barnes - lofty, self-centred, full of themselves." Maybe harsh on Mr Barnes but as I saw the N2N guy preening himself and gesticulating dramatically I knew what my mate meant.

None of that stuff for Mr Vertigan. Unfortunately, he's not down to handle any of our games for the rest of the season.  Cry

Thought i would come in here and add my praise for Mr Vertigan,without doubt his management of  players is exceptional,and it has been for many years.Some of the younger/less ecperienced referees should try and take a leaf out of his book.

A fantastic referee who also can have a bit of banter with players unlike quite a few refs out there !

He is also taking a little bit of stick at the moment on twitter ( the new maul ) of a certin Caldy prop!
@therugbyvicar if you want to take a look.

I'm all over that! the rollingmaul twitterati are growing by the week! @bringbackbuck8 for me.
 
The good vicar has always reffed in the right spirit for me, not that I always agreed with his calls when still playing, but he was always fair and good humoured and managed players well.
