Mike Rush in call for video refs at all games
10:19am Friday 24th August 2012 in Latest News
SAINTS coach Mike Rush has called for video referees to be introduced at all Super League games.
Rush said: “Perhaps we need to have video referees at all games. I know some coaches spoke about that earlier in the season.
“We should have them at every game or not at all to get some consistency. I know cost is an issue and camera angles might be difficult but it needs investigating.”
He said the technology would not necessarily mean big screens need to be installed for every game.
Instead, he suggested, footage could be examined by a video referee positioned in a stadium, with a try or no try signal being given via red and green lights.
On the Star’s website the poll is currently running 89per cent in favour of video referees at all games.
