This 34-year-old female referee from Spain is about to make international rugby history
On Saturday, October 14, Finland and Norway will contest a mid-level Conference 2 division rugby match.
But it is not the athletes, but the referee, who make this game extraordinary.
The match will be officiated by Alhambra Nievas, a 34-year-old from Spain — the first woman to ever referee a men’s rugby game in Europe, according to The Telegraph.

Nievas has a wealth of experience being in charge of the whistle.
Not a bad place to training 💪#elcanosportclinic #actitudelcano #newchalleges #6nations
