Ashley 'Ash' Rowden is England's most experienced domestic rugby union referee. Now in his 17th year of top class officiating, no other referee in England has officiated at more Premiership matches - or for that matter, sent off more players and put most in the sin bin - Johnson, Dawson, Dallaglio, Guscott, Chilcott, Probyn, Andrew, Healey, Lomu and Richards, etc.

Ash, has a story about all of them, some repeatable others not! He has bridged the era of the old amateur days to the modern ultra professional, whilst still carrying out a daytime profession of running his own transport company.

4 "A" Internationals
Commonwealth Games
Dubai Sevens
Infamous "ear biting" incident
Over 140 Premiership matches refereed

93 players sin-binned

As a Sales Director by day, you'll find out why he always had the last word with the players, no matter who they are!
