New Zealand referee Glen Jackson questions the possibility of taking a break from his career. After failing to be elected to the list of referees for this year’s Rugby World Cup in Japan. Now sports lovers who want to support their favorite teams can book Rugby World Cup Tickets online.
Jackson has confirmed speculation about his omission of Sport24 on the World Cup, with a career change now very likely.
World Rugby has not yet published the list of referees who will officiate at the World Cup in four months. However, it is thought that Ben O’Keefe and Paul Williams will be the representatives of New Zealand.
If Jackson decided to move away from officiating. New coaching career – be it referee coach or rugby coaches was a better choice.
“I was hoping to go to the Rugby World Cup in Japan later this year. But I already know I will not be,” said Jackson.
It’s a difficult race for me, but we have two kiwis going and I hope they’re doing well. In terms of selection, World Rugby decide who they want there.
My goals have changed a bit after being missed. It was arbitration at the World Cup.
“Now, I’d like to do another year of Super Rugby. The goal is to continue another year and eventually to train, be it, referees or rugby teams.”
Jackson has extensive experience in entering the field of coaching. His 9-year refereeing career has been with Bay of Plenty, Chiefs, Saracens, and Maori All Blacks and Barbarians.
He controlled four matches at the 2015 World Cup and then played five other matches as an assistant referee.
Jackson became the first New Zealander to play and referee 100 first-class matches that same year.
