Is it time for a TMO in school rugby?

The first-ever episode introduces regular host, Alex White, a young referee, and his good friend and guest host, Timothy Muasya Muthama, who plays rugby at UCT. Both are rugby mad and set out to answer the question: Is it time for a TMO in school rugby? Along the way, they discuss grassroots refereeing, whether it’s worth getting involved to give back to the game, and how players can have a beneficial and positive interaction with referees. Women’s referee, Zoe Naude, and World Rugby Referee, Ben O’Keeffe (who was an assistant referee in the Rugby World Cup Final in 2019), join Alex and Tim to add insight from the local and top level of the game.
