The One About Grassroots Referees

A week after Nigel Owens was on, we drop down a few leagues as Alex is joined by level 6 referee and vice-president of the Oxfordshire Referees Society, Rob Cross to talk about some of the challenges surrounding officiating at the grassroots level. From decreasing numbers, to levels of refereeing, pathways to becoming the next Wayne Barnes, problems from the touchlines and how the game might look in a decade.
