Welsh referee Nigel Owens loved refereeing the Rugby World Cup semifinal between England and the All Blacks and wants to continue his career.

Refereeing the “fast, furious” All Blacks-England Rugby World Cup semifinal has helped convince Nigel Owens to continue his whistleblowing career.

The 48-year-old Welshman wrote in hisWales Onlinecolumn that “those wanting to see the back of me should cancel the parties”.

Owens – widely regarded as the world’s best referee – said he realised “it’ll be a push to make it through to the [World Cup] tournament in France in 2023”.
