#006 Sarah McManus: Female Referee Gets Contentious
Sarah McManus talks about being a female referee in the predominantly male world of snooker and how it’s changing thanks to the #metoo movement and about some of the hardest rules in the book - the miss rule, the push shot, the simultaneous hit and judging what to do about ungentlemanly conduct.
She also talks about family, and how the snooker community helped her heal after the death of her son.
