Oh no, Another great man gone. RIP Paul Dobson, a kind and generous man of rugby. He takes with him a profound knowledge of the early days of the game in this country and an encyclopaedic understanding of the laws. And he was great company. My condolences to the family.


Our neighbour, Paul Dobson, passed away this afternoon. Apart from being a rugby legend, he was a proper good guy. They were the first to welcome us into our new home 3 years ago, and Paul was always up for some street side banter (in Afrikaans nogals!). RIP Paul 🙁


Absolutely devastated to hear the news of Paul Dobson’s passing. I will miss our conversations & humourous mail banter. What a lovely man with so much love for his family & the game. RIP dear Paul


Deeply saddened to hear of Paul Dobson’s passing. A terrific person, totally passionate about the practice and history of refereeing. Deserving recipient of the World Rugby referee award for distinguished service in 2012. My thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.


We mourn the passing of a great man of South African rugby; referee, author, historian, mentor, friend to all, Paul Dobson, who passed away yesterday afternoon after a short illness.


Never had the privilege of meeting #PaulDobson but his legend preceded him & read much of rugby works. Coming from Stellenbosch we always heard of these rugby greats from Bishops: Dobson, Bay, etc. Condolences to the Dobson family & #Bishops community. RIP


A legend of SA rugby. Forever open to a call to discuss or clear up a law or interpretation. Would never criticise a ref even if you pushed the conversation in that way. Played a big role in some of my stories as a sports journo. Rip uncle Paul Dobson

We are still working on getting more details about the death, as family statement on the death is yet to be released.
