It is my sad duty to report the death of Phil Jones.



Older members Hampshire Rugby will remember him as a founder member of Havant RFC in the 1950’s.


As a major force in Hampshire Referee’s Society of which he was Secretary and played a large part in the development of former International referee Clive Norling amongst other top referees.


He was Vice President of Hampshire and upon moving to Australia 30 years ago became Secretary of the Queensland Referee’s Society.


Phil’s contribution to refereeing in Hampshire and Australia was immense and will be a lasting tribute to a great rugby man.
