NRL Podcast: Dealing with professional fouls

Gavin Badger is joined by English whistleblower Tim Roby and the NRL's strength and conditioning coach for the referees, Matt Jefferies, on this week's Refs Round-up to discuss how to deal with professional fouls.

They go through what constitutes a professional foul, what to do when the act of fouling a player is done during a try-scoring play and what the refs weigh up when sin-binning for this.

The refs also discuss Roby's journey to the NRL and the differences he's noticed between the NRL and the Super League, when players get sent back to play the ball and the drills referees do to ensure their movement is up to scratch to rule on passes.
