Nigel Owens was at his absolute brilliant best last month as Leinster took on the Scarlets at the RDS.
During a break in play late in the second half, one of the ballboys accidentally hit Owens with the ball. The Welshman responded like only he can by brilliantly yellow carding the ballboy.
The former World Referee of the Year then came out on social media looking to get in contact with the young Irish fan so he could send him out his match jersey signed, for being such a good sport on the day.
The good news is the jersey has arrived with Owens once again keeping good on his promise. Absolute legend.
