Matthew O’Grady Makes His Premiership Debut

Hot on the heels of refereeing his first Anglo-Welsh Cup game between Gloucester and Saracens and being an Assistant Referee in Connacht’s European Champions Cup victory over Toulouse in Galway, Matthew O’Grady made his debut as a referee in the Aviva Premiership, the pinnacle of domestic rugby in England, on Saturday 26 November when Exeter Chiefs played Worcester Warriors at Sandy Park.

In a thrilling 11 try game Exeter, last year’s Premiership runner’s up, beat Worcester 57 - 22.
