A slightly different style of show for you here as I bring you the audio of a Facebook Live show, recorded on 22 July 2020, and hosted by Three Blokes, A Ball & Bod. Co-hosted by Advantage Over host Keith Lewis and the show's own Big Joe Sheppard, we were joined by Bay of Plenty Referee Manager, Cam Russell and Premiership Rugby TMO (who had 110 appearances as a Premiership referee) David Rose.We covered so much ground in the show and it was a shame not to bring you the audio. It was record live and involved contributions and questions from the live viewers as the show went on. If you've enjoyed the show, do leave a rating and review wherever you found it. Those ratings help other folks out there find the podcast. If you'd like to support the work of RugbyReferee.net, then you can buy us a coffee over at rugbyreferee.net/coffee - we'll be most grateful!
