According to the Rugby Paper today, Matt Goddard has retired from refereeing due to a chronic injury. No clues as to what that was, but never nice to see one of the top guys having to leave the arena e
Not that I don’t trust the RP, but a quick google search only came up with this story: http://www.theroar.com.au/2009/10/30/matt-goddard-retires/
which in itself is retiring. Seems to suggest that next year, the Autralian number 1 will be – erm… Steve Walsh.
