    The RFU Championship will trial the first ever use of “RefCam” in a live rugby union broadcast when Newcastle Falcons take on London Scottish this Sunday, December 23. Kick Off 3:15pm.

    Continuing to bring supporters closer to the action, the RFU Championship fixture will show live footage from a camera placed on the shirt of match referee Matt Carley, including close-ups of the scrum in particular. As well as increasing the viewing experience for supporters and helping them understand the role of the referee, RefCam will crucially provide a vehicle for referees further down the leagues to gain valuable insight into professional refereeing.

    Commenting on the new project Head of Professional Referee Development Ed Morrison said:

    “This is an exciting development and one that we’re excited to trial. Not only will it offer a new perspective for viewers but it will also provide us with an additional tool which can be utilised within the on-going development of our referees."

    Gus Williamson, Executive Producer, Sky Sports Rugby Union, also commented:

    “At Sky Sports we are always looking to introduce broadcast innovations that add depth to our coverage and this will certainly help viewers understand the decisions that referees make. We are excited about working with the RFU and we are confident that rugby viewers will be fascinated by this new way of watching the game.”

    Newcastle Falcons vs London Scottish, Sunday December 23, KO 315pm. Live on Sky Sports 3 HD.

    The problem in Pretoria revolved around the number of substitutes/replacements of front row players that resulted in the Australians' playing ...

    Can't score (what) from free kick?

    Thread Starter: Huck2Spit

    Have my 2018 law book with me and it says nothing about not being able to score from a free kick. You still can't do that right? I'm sure it's meant to prevent being able to kick for 3 from the fk. Today awarded a fk 15m in for blue lineout infringement, green 10 quick taps, zig and zags through...

    Cipriani red but stiff arm on Morgan only yellow?

    Thread Starter: BikingBud

    Confused? I am as are many fans. How many collisions and tackles during the game? We can be forensic after the game and review highlights and pick up many potential citing events. Is that where we want the sport to be? I don't think so. First 2 mins of the Toulouse v Leinster game not...

    One for the Welsh refs here: Im reffing U10 for the first time on Sunday. I've read through the variations to the standard U19 rules. The U10 bit specifically says a scrum is to be awarded for ko and forward pass, but does not mention 5m scrums at all. Does that imply no 5m scrums or that you...
