When it comes to Noel Bissett, Bill Harrigan has only one regret - he never got to ride with his old refereeing mate. Considered the best referee of all time, Harrigan got emotional talking about the match officials honouring Bissett by wearing black armbands in the NRL's return. Harrigan described Bissett as one of nature's gentlemen and thought the honour was thoroughly deserved. Bissett died last month, while the NRL was in lockdown due to the coronavirus, but it's not surprising he's being honoured on it's return. He was a life member of the referee's association, the Canberra Raiders and Canberra Region Rugby League - as well as being a member of the ACT Sporting hall of fame.
