Former rugby league star Jamie Bloem and current Grade 1 referee has recently been through a nightmare of being falsely accused.

The accusations led to Jamie being suspended from refereeing and commentating on BBC Radio Leeds after being falsely accused of having sex with an under-age girl. Bloem wants to publicly thank Ian Smith and Stuart Cummins for their support through his ordeal.

They kept in touch to check on my state of mind and telling me to keep myself fit. Keeping in touch with friends is one way to maintain your mental fitness to deal with the ups and downs.

State of Mind would like to wish Jamie all the very best for the new season.
