Referee Steven Lee got far closer to the action than he had anticipated during Newcastle Falcon’s 29-9 win over Nottingham in the RFU Championship over the weekend.
If you listen carefully you can hear the slightly delayed whistle, blown from under the pile of bodies. The good news is that referee Lee wasn’t hurt. He laughed it off before soldiering on.
