One of the reasons they don’t mic up Premiership refs live on air like rugby refs, the players could not take a bollocking without kicking off and hassling the official. Love watching and listening to rugby refs laying down the law and explaining very clearly why they have made a decision to the player concerned. Also note that a lot of the players still refer to the rugby ref as sir and some refs call players by their first names. The respect between players and rugby refs and players and Premiership refs is miles apart and sad to see. Also you don’t get many rugby coaches gobbing off on air of in the press after a game about how the referee had done. It’s chalk and cheese really, Premiership footballers have a lot of indiscipline that needs addressing but I will say that VAR interpretation needs to be addressed by the authorities aswell.
