Mic'd up scrumhalf Josh Holmes puts in a vocal performance in the NRC

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.

    Ha ha! So it is! What that video shows me though is that if you keep moaning at the ref, where there is any element of doubt thereafter he will ping you. And I have no problem with that. Speaking of Steve Walsh, I'm not sure enough people are fully aware of this rather excellent twitter account: https://twitter.com/SteveWalshsHair

    Don't like this at all. I used to do it all the time myself. The best thing a coach ever did was sit me down and tell me to cut that crap. Refs shouldn't have to put up with that.

    That is former Wallaby Stephen Hoiles, and he's actually good mates with Steve Walsh https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhbOVco4eYw

    Yep, love these clips, definitely keen to see more. Got to take issue with the chat at the end though. Don't know who this bloke is on the right, but "chirping away at the referee" is NOT a half-back's job. OK it's generally accepted that the 9 talks more than the other players, (I played in a team with a particularly vocal 9 and we used to let him be captain just so that the ref would be less reluctant to send him off for moaning at him the whole time). "Prepare to deal with half backs" - this should mean be ready to march the gobby prick ten metres at the first opportunity and if he still doesn't shut up get your yellow card close to hand. If you want to argue with the ref, piss off and play football.
