Good to see the refs side and understand more of what’s being looked for. Would be great to see some longer vids with footage commentary explaining where the marginal decisions are being made and why. The ref is one of the few people on the field who can make or break a game as an individual. Better understanding of the decisions by refs is always good; a solid appreciation by players and spectators is almost more important! How many times do you see refs take the flack for one poor decision when a team has given away multiple penalties during a game. Scotland / Australia in the World Cup – I don’t recall the ref failing to secure a vital set piece play before the media spotlight landed!
