Sky Sport offers "referee's microphone"

skysport_logo_rebuild5_CMYKThe number of times I have been watching a game and wondered what was being said to a player before being marched off the field by the ref, as well as the players response.  I wonder how many codes will end up introducing this technology to their commentary.

Be one step closer to the Super Rugby action this season as SKY Sport subscribers have the option of tuning into the referee’s microphone for all Super Rugby matches played in New Zealand.

All SKY Sport basic subscribers can tune into the referee’s microphone for the duration of the Crusaders v Chiefs and Highlanders v Blues matches this weekend, by accessing alternative commentary on their  SKY remotes.

Once alternative commentary is selected you’ll be listening to what Aaron Cruden and Benji Marshall will be hearing on the field this weekend – it doesn’t get much closer than that.

Broadcast Details: Optional referee’s microphone

Crusaders v Chiefs – Friday 21 February – 7.00pm – SKY Sport 1

Highlanders v Blues – Saturday 22 February – 7.00pm – SKY Sport 1

    This is exactly like the ‘Ref Jeff’ sketch on Kroll Show. We can only hope it’ll be as entertaining….
