We have embraced the worlds best appointments program MATCH REF allowing referees to see who they are refereeing with and what matches. The appointments officer, Assistant Appointments officer, Branch coach and Referees Manager meet and discuss weekly and strategically place referees and Assistant Referees on appropriate matches. Our branch coach Kieran Fisher has a big input into referees that might be ready for upgrading to tougher matches which enhances and strengthens their skills to officiate. Once you become a referee all of your information is housed online. We look forward to you being a part of our MATCH REF program.
Sunday 9pm cut off for unavailability: To run a smooth appointments operation we need all referees to ensure they have placed their unavailability in the system no later than 9pm each Sunday evening once the season has commenced. Appointments will go live each Wednesday evening from 6pm.
