Dana - one of the best referees in the world

An excellent study appeared today about one of rugby's leading referees - USA's Dana Teagarden.

Note that I do not say "female referee" - because it seems wrong to pigeon-hole Dana in that way. Fact is that the IRB calls on her to referee men's international rugby as much as it does women's, so she is clearly one of the leading referees of either gender.

What is remarkable - and what I did not realise until I read this - was that Dana began as a member of the USA's world cup winning squad in 1991. I wonder how many other leading officials also have world cup winning medals?

Its an excellent and inspiring article - well worth a look.
