Women’s Six Nations Referee Chose Army Nurse

Posted on February 5, 2019

She already has international experience, having refereed Wales against South Africa last year and says the Six Nations call came as a surprise.

She said: “Getting the game in the Autumn, I was not expecting that. I felt the game went quite well and my review went well. I thought I may have a chance. I didn’t expect a phone call to say I was going to have a Six Nations game.” For O’Donnell, her refereeing dreams are on another international stage but she is wary of her competition.

She said: “Ideally, I would love to say I could go to the World Cup. We will have to see performances go. There’s a lot of competition in the Rugby Football Union with some of the referees coming through. Some of the referees across Europe and the world are now pushing boundaries.”
