Referees need to get back on feet!

At a time of on-going debates over referees and their various styles, we were struck by two interesting appointments for games in the Leinster Junior Football championship.

Eddie Craul (Wicklow) was appointed to Wexford v Cavan, while Paul Kneel (Louth) took charge of Kildare v Dublin. Can we take that crawling and kneeling are new requisites for referees? Any referees by the name of Walker out there?

By the way, isn't it interesting to see Cavan playing in Leinster at junior level? Perhaps they would be better off there at the senior grade as well.
