Nigel Owens trains budding referees for school matches

Rugby's Nigel Owens has been running a referee course for school pupils.

The Welsh Rugby Union said there was "significant demand" for referees for extra-curricular matches at school level across Wales.

The body said development of referees was a key priority and it was "determined" to use Mr Owens's profile following the Rugby World Cup as part of its recruitment campaign.

A Level One session took place on Monday at the Vale Resort near Cardiff.
