( SPORT IN OTHER LANDS ~| BRITISH REFEREEING IN RUGBY FOOTBALL. j PERPLEXING TO THE COLONIALS. Sometimes the Colonials hesitate, and perhapp, writes Major Phillip Trevor, it is only fair to call attention to one cause of hesitation. They are clearly perplexed by the variety in pro cedure of British refereelng. I have seen dis tinctly bad refereelng in South Africa, but this at least may. be said : Your player knows exactly where he Is with the referee in South Africa. Good, bad, or indifferent, tho point of view of twenty referees is more or less iden tical. The wide discretion allowed by the rules lead# to a divergence- of attitude with our roferee3. I myself have noticed during the tour the Colo nlala pulled up on the Thursday for something they are allowed to do without official inter ference on the Saturday. Tho remark applies aleo, of course, to their opponents ; for it i» not even hinted that they have been treated ?with olther favoritism or severity by the vari ous referees w...
