Rolleston’s Cameron Wootton will be joined by Prebbleton’s Will Hutchinson in the nine-strong Kiwi group of referees. Wootton, 19, started refereeing five years ago and has since earned his level four badge, the highest on offer for an official. The Lincoln High student has controlled games at the junior, secondary school and open nationals level and has also been part of the Australian juniors compeititon. Wootton said this would be a major step up. “It’s going to be a lot of fun to be out there with a whole lot of new countries, new styles and being able to see where I stack up,” he said. Another positive of the appointment is that some of his mum’s family lives in Malaysia, which means a family reunion is in the works. He said as he has risen through the ranks, he has a new found appreciation for how fast the game is. “It makes you appreciate the level of skill on display and makes me work hard at my fitness to keep up,” he said. Hutchinson, 18, started refereeing as a 12-yearold when a friend of his mum’s asked if anyone knew someone who could referee social touch rugby games. The Christ’s College student is now ranked No 13 in the country. Cameron “I love the sport and Wootton the friendship that comes from it. This is a chance to push myself to make the open World Cup. “The sport has allowed me to travel internationally, largely for free, and those opportunities are one of the great things about the sport,” he said. Wootton said he would like to gain an appointment in the open World Cup next year and he saw this trip as an opportunity to prove he was up to that level. Both referees agreed the sport could do with more young officials. •More sport, page 21 Heading to Christchurch Hospital?
