A report in the Guardian says his contract will be terminated within 72 hours......he was scheduled to take charge of the Wales v England game on Saturday.

3 strikes & your out apparently.

Thoughts...

Alledgedly ( just my thoughts) he whispered " hope Wales thrash the English" in his sleep overheard by MI5, passed on to the English coaching camp...

In 1972, Roy Bergiers scored that try and said "that was for you lofty"

This sounds mightily like the last time he was 'sacked'. Could it be old news?

Could be something to do with this: http://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/rugby/super-rugby/8373700/Conrad-Smith-shrugs-off-tussle-with-Walsh

This story may have legs, but it would be a hell of a call in the week running up to the 6N decider!!

A video clip of the incident: http://balls.ie/rugby/rugby-ref-steve-walsh-takes-exception-to-conrad-smith-getting-in-his-way/

Don't believe this one.

I quite like Walsh actually, I know he has a huge ego and maybe doesn't understand the scrum, but at least he tries to keep the game flowing.

Plus seems like a decent guy to have a pint with after the game. Wink

Wasn't that HAD a drinking problem....

On Wednesday 18 March 2009, it was announced that Walsh would lose his job after a third strike on his record [4] - this time turning up drunk to a refereeing conference in Sydney.[5] Wayne Barnes took over from Walsh as referee of the grand slam deciding match in Cardiff on the 21st.

But then again we know how accurate wikipedia can be at times

Well, if he has been sacked, it's a loss. He was the best referee of the three at the weekend ( admittedly not difficult!) and that wikipedia entry states he was the Super Rugby referee of the year last year.
