Referee: Karl Dickson

Not sure if it sits well with me, that a fairly recent ex Harlequin is reffing one of their games with something riding on it...

Surely you're not suggesting any form of bias by Mr Dickson? ;)

Perhaps we can get Christophe Ridley back and he could adjudicate the armpit catching tournament at halftime.
It's an up and coming sport.

Has Dickson reffed Quins before?

He will undoubtedly still be mates with some Quins players playing on Monday, if nothing else puts him in an awkward situation.

He is there Madders, just not in the middle. Maybe he can catch a few balls in his armpit from the touch line?

8 years and 169 appearances at Quins. Whether he has refereed them before or not, I don't think he should personally. Just my opinion.

Something must have changed. Correct me if I’m wrong but I think Chris White, the best referee at the time and arguably since, was unable to referee at Kingsholm because he lived in Cheltenham.

At the time that was his personal choice but in the end he was " forced" to ref us.

Yes he has ref'd Quins before... I have this feeling that he's actually ref'd a Glaws/Queens game as well and the comments on this thread are very familiar as a result... could be making it up... will take a look.
