Re: George Clancy

Over the years Ireland has produced some outstandingly excellent Rugby Union referees. George Clancy's name will not find a place in that illustrious group. A journeyman referee who, to my way of thinking, used to receive far better appointments than his performances deserved. However, over the past few years i think the Rugby authorities rather saw through him a bit more and he didn't get the international fixtures he once did.

Clancy has the deserved reputation of being extremely affable and very good company and I suspect this, rather than his purely technical ability, may have helped further his progression when Rugby was a much more social game than it is now.

Good luck to him in his future endeavours and profession.
