Rugby referee Nigel Owens has made an Irish teenager’s day by sending him a signed jersey.
Gareth Duncan snapped a picture of the Welsh referee as he prepared to assist at the game between Ireland and Australia at the Aviva stadium in November.
Gareth and his mates called to Owens to give them a wave while they took a photograph but instead he responded with a v-sign and a cheeky grin.
Gareth’s picture subsequently went viral and was seen by Owens.
He loved the picture and promised to send the young rugby fan a signed jersey as a thank you for taking it.
He kept his word and Gareth was back on Twitter at the weekend to show off his new jersey and thank the referee.
Top stuff from Owens - he’s a fan favourite for a reason.
