This week Fox Sports decided to place a microphone on a scrumhalf, something they were probably best advised not to do. It turned out well though, as Josh Holmes had a great match for the North Harbour Rays, as the mic captured some of his ‘passionate’ exchanges.
Holmes, formerly of the Waratahs and the Brumbies, ran well with ball in hand and harassed the referee all night long. Some of his protestations were possibly a bit overboard, but are no doubt exaggerated by the amplified audio.
He got a talking to from the referee eventually, which probably fired him up even more.
It’s one of the better mic’d up pieces so far, and you can view more in the Related Posts below.
