Saturday’s Times-Age included an article called “Reti takes region’s temperature.” The article’s picture included Bob Francis CNZM, QSO, MBE, JP, former international rugby referee, Masterton mayor of 21 years, and chair of Masterton Medical Board. The caption wrongly referred to him as Sir Bob Francis. Bob is not a knight – yet.
