RUFC - Ref Watch v Oldham Athletic
John Brooks from Melton Mowbray

John came through the ranks as an Assistant Referee before becoming the man in the middle in the Conference in 2014 and reffed the 2016 Football Conference Play-Off between Braintree and Grimsby.

The start of the 2016/17 season saw him move up to the Football League and this season he has been in charge of eight games showing a whopping thirty-two yellow cards and two red cards already.

When he was an Assistant Referee he caused a bit on controversy at The Emirates when he urged the visiting Manchester City team to go to their fans and 'thank them for coming and paying £62 for the privilege'. He was dropped for his next game. (Personally, I think that was a bit harsh on him - a team shouldn't need telling to go and thank their fans in my opinion).

This is the first time John has been in charge of a Millers game
