BBC Sport - Get Inspired: Kath Pritchard on life as a rugby referee
'I actually sent my son off'
- From the section Get Inspired
When mum-of-three Kath Pritchard isn't fighting crime as a temporary superintendent with the South West Police she partakes in another of her passions - refereeing rugby games.
After being fed up with waiting for the referee to finish games on other pitches before coming to her children's matches she decided to give it a go herself and has been a Welsh Rugby Union-qualified referee since 2010.
"One of my biggest regrets is that the opportunities weren't there for woman and younger girls when I was growing up," she says.
