I believe we beat Saracens at Kingsholm in his first season as a top-flight ref. There was one incident that I remember. Saracens went over under the posts at the Worcester Street end; Dickson called for TMO assistance, saying onfield decision was a try. The replay showed, clearly, the Saracens 9 put the ball down on a defender's leg. Dickson changed his mind and ruled out the score. Thought that was quite good officiating at the time.

It's down to us to overcome any issues with the ref, and we will.

Here we go, we’ve already lost because of the ref….

Even if he’s bad which I don’t think he is, he will be bad for both sides.

99/100 the best team wins.

He refereed us at Saints...and it was his fault we couldn't defend and had brainfarts in the discipline department ..and then cocked up every chance we had to win the match.

Incredible that he's doing the job he's doing when it makes us play like shizzle.
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

Completely agree, it doesn't mean we've lost, he will absolutely be bad for both sides and any flow, consistency of the game will be ruined.

At least it's not on TV. He utterly, utterly kills games.
