RFU trialling ‘ref-cam’ this weekend

The Rugby Football Union has revealed that it will trial a ‘ref-cam’ during the televised Championship game between Newcastle Falcons and London Scottish this Sunday (23 December).

Matt Carley, the match official, will have a three-inch square HD camera attached to his shirt to show close-ups of on-the-field action.

The footage, with audio, will be available to Sky directors. It will also be accessible to the RFU, who will use it for match official training.
