How to find a referee

If you need a referee, firstly ensure that your game is covered by insurance. Your school or club may already have this arranged. If not, contact the following people to arrange it:


Metro - Tim Richards (NSW Suburban Rugby)

Country - Terry Woodward (NSW Country Rugby)


Your game must be sanctioned by the ARU and NSWRU before a referee will be appointed. See the ARU website for information on sanctioning or teams touring from overseas.


For appointment of referee to games in the metro area contact Luke Rogan (NSWRU Referee Appointments & Development Officer).


For country appointments, contact your local association.

Referee feedback and no-shows

If you want to report a referee not turning up, or provide feedback on their performance (positive or negative), please fill out this Jotform
