Stuart Atwell

Stuart Atwell and his haircut caused quite a stir on Saturday evening, the memes and jokes on Twitter flowed regards a lockdown haircut.

You could say it was harsh and insulting, I can imagine his phone when it was switched back on if Stuarts referee friends are anything like mine, I’m sure it was priceless. 

The thing is nobody is talking about a referee’s decision, his game, positioning, awareness was excellent. Stuart has come a long way, from the early setbacks, Stuart has shown resilience not only to come back fighting but to start pushing into the top tier of the game, he’s improving every game, he’s learning and showing off fitness and positional skills. 

Next time Stuart officiates please watch him, watch how he fights for positions, and something else which is evident on Stuart watch his stride length, how he varies it from short sprints to a long sprint to get in the right position to make a decision. 

Angles, decision making and proximity to play are all good things to watch with Stuart.
