SKY?S RUGBY VIEWERS ARE ALL EARS

The live interactive coverage of England?s home games during the championship will provide Sky digital viewers with access to the referee?s microphone, a move Sky is hoping will give fans a unique insight into the game.
Saturday?s referee, Ed Morrison, said: ?Funny enough, the first time I experienced this technology was in South Africa in the early 90?s where they called it `field ears?.
?I was really excited about it and when I came back to England I mentioned it to a few people, but no-one showed any interest. Lo and behold here we are ten years later.?
The Ref-Link system has been used successfully at Leicester and Bath and Morrison is confident that the technology will be a big hit at the Twickenham autumn internationals.
