International rugby union referees share their experiences of what took them to the top. Hollie Davidson – International Rugby 7’s and 6 Nations refereee from Scotland and RFU National Referee Academy Manager Chris White discuss their ideas on how to make it.

Chris White refereed the world cup semi-final in 2003 and was tipped to referee the RWC final had his home nation England not made it to the championship game. He works closely with Englands Premiership referees and is now responsible for developing the next generation of referees to reach that level.
