Get to Know the Refs with Diogo Miranda

From the Portugal Rugby national 7’s team stardom to becoming one of the new upcoming match officials in this corner of Europe, Diogo Miranda talked with us about what it means to go to Vila Real de Santo António and be one of the main referees at the “Sevens in the Sun” tournament.

The former Belenenses Rugby player and captain achieved a mountain of goals and trophies in his time as a player, but now faces new challenges as a judge on the pitch, looking to give back to rugby as best as he can.

Memories from the World Series tournaments, details about how it was to make the jump from playing with the oval ball to refereeing how the beautiful egg should be treated, Diogo Miranda gifts you an insight of his journey in the rugby world.

In this 3rd interview of the “Get to Know the Sevens in The Suns” series, the now Portuguese referee explains what he expects from the sunny and warm 7’s tournament, what players should look out for and how this competition will help him develop as a better match official.
