International rugby union referee Nigel Owens was recently presented with a silver whistle, engraved and supplied by Uppermost, by the Treorchy RFC Juniors and Minis. The whistle was a ‘thank you’ gift from the Welsh club’s young players to Owens as he attended their presentation event. Owens has been selected as a referee for the forthcoming Rugby World Cup in New Zealand in September and October, and on receiving the whistle he delighted the young audience by saying he may use it during the World Cup. The whistle is a silver plated Acme Thunderer, which Owens said was his whistle of choice. The engraved whistle is due to get its first outing tomorrow (Saturday 14th May) as Owens is due to referee the Magners League play-off game between Munster and Ospreys.
