Minutes before the half break in the 3rd 2010 Tri-Nations clash between South Africa and New Zealand, referee Nigel Owens is caught between a darting All Black halfback Jimmy Cowan and Springbok flanker Juan Smith and took a pretty heavy hit and then landed at the bottom of the breakdown. Here is the video segment from that moment:

Referee Advice

Say commands once. When you say commands over and over, you’re teaching the players that they don’t have to do it first time you say it. Say it once and hold them to it. Instead of saying it again, play advantage or penalize the player. — Bruce Carter (NCRRS)
