NIGEL OWENS MAY just hear a bit of quick-witted banter at Twickenham tomorrow when England play host to Ireland in their crucial RBS 6 Nations clash.

The Welsh official is a touch judge for the game in south west London but his preparations have been dealt a bit of a blow.

Earlier this evening, he took to social media to ask a favour of his followers.

After getting a tip-off about there being ‘a Sports Direct 2 roundabouts down from Twickenham’, Owens confirmed he’d grab some new boots there.

So, if you spot him slipping and sliding along the touchline tomorrow afternoon, you’ll know why.
