Arthur Oxford


Former Newtown and St George lower grade player became a graded referee in 1942. Oxford was the centre of one of the most controversial games in international rugby league history when he refereed the NSW v Great Britain match in 1954 because of constant fighting. Oxford had already sent Englishman Ray Price from the field when he abandoned the game. He never refereed another match.
