Many sports have video referees now at the top level, with soccer being one of the latest additions. I was wondering which sport was the first to introduce video reviews, and when this happened. There's a list of sports with video review on Wikipedia, and the earliest reference there seems to be rugby league, the 1996 Super League. Is this really the first occurrence?
I'm aware that photo finishes are much older and can sometimes be rewound to produce some kind of motion, but I'd rather exclude those since they are more like stills than real video.
