Pic: Nigel Owens Reveals Special Boots For 100th European Game & They Are Beautiful
Very nice indeed.
Nigel Owens will be the man in charge this weekend as Clermont & Saracens battle it out for the Champions Cup.
It will be Owens’ third European final in a row and a sixth in total having first officiated in European rugby in the 2001 Challenge Cup. The final will also be the 100th game in the tournament that the former World Referee of the year has taken charge of.
“I am really proud,” said Owens.
“The European final is the biggest club game in the northern hemisphere if not the world game. I am as excited now doing the sixth one as I was doing the first one. That is why I am still refereeing because I still get that buzz.”
“I am not refereeing because I want any milestones or records or this being my 100th game. But when those do come along and the 100th game happens to fall on the final as well, it adds something more special to it as well.
To mark the occasion Owens Under Armour have made the Welshman a special pair of boots are they are beautiful.
