Toronto Rugby has lost a great friend and passionate supporter with the passing of Brian Chatland.
Former provincial and national panel referee, longtime and highly skilled referee coach and assessor, Brian's impressive work ethic included the implementation of a referee video system and made him the cornerstone of the TDRRS development program for the past decade. A Life Member of the TDDRS, in 2008 Brian was inducted into the Rugby Ontario Hall of Fame.
He is missed.
