Nigel Owens Just Brilliantly Put A ‘Fan’ In His Place On Twitter

Grow up.

Nigel Owens is one of the best referees in the business and that’s fact. The Welshman is one of the most experienced and decorated officials in the game having officiated at the very highest level for almost 20 years.

He’s taken charge of multiple Tests, European finals and even the Rugby World Cup final back in 2015 between New Zealand and Australia. So when a so called ‘fan’ decides to have a go at him on Twitter – he has every right to defend himself.

House of Rugby is back with a brand new URC show – hosted by RugbyLAD founder Jason Hennessy, Ireland international Megan Williams and Olympic sevens star, Greg O'Shea. Follow and subscribe to it HERE.

One such Leinster fan called his refereeing in the PRO14 last night as “outrageous” and upon Owens’ closer inspection has been criticising the Welshman on the social media platform for quite some time.

And Owens rightly put him in his place…


But why bother even replying? Because he reckons too many people stay quiet on Twitter instead of calling out “the idiots and trolls.”
