One of the enduring qualities of Twitter is that it can pitch average Joe Soaps sports fan into direct dialogues with people of varying degrees of fame, be it sporting or otherwise.

One such Twitter thread occurred in the wake of Bristol’s victory over Cornish Pirates at Ashton Gate on Friday, in which Bristol flyhalf Ian Madigan came to the defence of the officiating.

All three of the officials were women.

A fan wasn’t best pleased with the female referees, Tweeting: “That was sadly the worst officiating I’ve seen in a long time! Embarrassment to the league and the game in general. Was this first time there’s been 3 females? Hasn’t helped cause of getting more female officials in to game – sadly. Did occasion get to them = silence from TMO?”

Madigan did not agree, but the Tweeter he responded to didn’t quite appreciate the Irish pivot’s perspective on the matter.

Game, set and match Mr Madigan.
