The Irish judge is the only woman on the refereeing panel who will take part in the Rugby World Cup in September.
The participation of women in various sports disciplines is something that we have lived with for many years. However, female participation in places like arbitration is just beginning to be a part of our normal lives. Just as it was announced that a woman made her debut as a referee in the Men’s Rugby World Cup last year, this time, Joy Fell will be the first referee to participate in the Men’s Rugby World Cup.
World Rugby has released the list of referees that will participate in the planetary event in France, and among the 12 referees, seven assistants and seven TMO officials (TV official), the Irish Joy Neville will be part of the referees who will officiate the World Cup that will be held in France between September and October from this year.
This is the first time a woman has been cited, and the 39-year-old judge is experienced enough to be part of the great event. Neville whistled in the 2017 Women’s Rugby World Cup Final when New Zealand beat England. Also, like her fellow referees in other sports, she was the first to do justice in a first-class UK duel, and the second to do so in an international match.
Twenty teams from all continents will take part in the World Cup tournament, and will participate in it Chile’s participation for the first time In addition to Latin America, Argentina and Uruguay. Neville will be part of the TMO squad and the stadiums that will host the 48 matches will be: Paris, Lyon, Nantes, Marseille, Saint-Denis, Lille Saint-Etienne, Nice, Bordeaux and Toulouse.
