Video refs to have more powers in rugby
07:32 AEST Sat Jan 12 2013

The International Rugby Board has decided to trial further use of video assistance for referees, beginning in the new season in each hemisphere.

The television match official (TMO) will be able to advise the referee about incidents of potential foul play and will also be able to review up to two phases of play before a try is awarded, if consulted by a referee.

The IRB announced on Friday the trial will take place in both international and domestic competitions.

IRB chairman Bernard Lapasset said: "We are committed to ensuring that (referees) have all the tools they require ... to ensure that they can perform to the highest possible standards."
