Peter Stringer named as Betway's Real Life TMO

From microwaving fish in the office kitchen to leaving empty cartons of milk in the fridge, Stringer sees all.
The Rugby World Cup 2023 is inching closer and closer, and we're gearing up for an exciting few weeks of rugby.
In just a few days, the tournament commences and we'll get to see some of the world's best rugby players go head to head in stadiums across France.
Over the next couple of weeks, rugby fans can expect some intense rivalries, impressive play and, of course, the return of the television match official (TMO), who helps the referee make tough calls during the matches.
One rugby player who knows a thing or two about making tough calls is former Irish rugby union star Peter Stringer. Since retiring, Stringer has had his sights set on becoming a TMO – but with a twist.
Instead of analysing action from the rugby pitch, Stringer has become Betway's real-life TMO, and in a brand new video, we can see him issue penalties for some of life's most serious offences.
Indeed, this legend of Irish rugby legend is on TMO duties, and he's not afraid to issue the strictest penalties if the situation calls for it.
Putting empty cartons of milk back in the fridge? That's a penalty. Scrolling on your phone mid-conversation? You're getting a yellow card. Microwaving fish in the office canteen? That's a red card, no doubt about it.
You can check the former Munster player adjusting to his new role in the video below.
As well as making tough calls from the sidelines of life, Stringer will also be diving headfirst into the Rugby World Cup 2023 as he joins Betway's portfolio of ambassadors. With this deal, Stringer will provide insights to rugby fans with regular blog posts on Betway Insider, the brand's editorial hub.
Stringer is the latest sports star to join Betway's portfolio of ambassadors, following in the footsteps of Ireland football legend Robbie Keane and former Irish jockey, Katie Walsh.
Commenting on his new role, Stringer said, "I’m delighted to be joining one of the world’s biggest betting brands as an official ambassador. I look forward to helping rugby fans garner valuable insights with my thoughts on the game’s biggest tournaments, starting with the biggest of all, the World Cup."
