Richard is a Joiner/Glazer and chose to get into refereeing as it was his way of adding value to the sport of rugby.
His favourite venue is the "Cake Tin" Westpac Stadium in Wellington - "It has the best playing surface and is also the best place to be a spectator."
Richard keeps fit by going to the gym and his advice for aspiring referees is "you must referee for the enjoyment."
