Record – holding international referee Nigel Owens was born and bred on a council estate in Mynyddcerrig West Wales and first picked up the referee whistle aged 16. Officiating his first international game in 2005 between Ireland and Japan he is now the current record holder for test matches refereed. His achievements certainly don’t stop there, making his World Cup debut in 2007 in France he is the only referee ever to be appointed to referee three consecutive Heineken Cup finals. Going on to referee another three finals in the following years – making it a record six European cup finals as well as two challenge cup finals and six Pro14 finals.
Aside from refereeing, Nigel is a co-presenter on Welsh language chat shows and won huge plaudits for his Desert Island Discs programme and in 2017, he presented the Panorama programme on Eating Disorders in Men and Boys. Nigel’s autobiography was released in Nov 2008, in Welsh called “Hanner Amser” (Half Time).
One of the first in the male-dominated sports history to come out as openly gay, Nigel was named ‘Gay Sports Personality of the Year’ by gay rights group Stonewall in 2007 and then Gay Sports Personality of the Decade in 2016 and for his work on and off the pitch in rugby, equality, inclusiveness and mental health he has received many more awards.
