To all Clubs please welcome your ref and contact them in advance with directions and any contact details - thank you in advance :-)
Whos the Ref www.whostheref.com is the place WSRR refs need to go to for their ref appointments. It is also important that every ref keeps their diary up to date at WTR, with their availability and to complete scores. Not doing this makes it tough for the hard working team who make sure as many games are covered every weekend in allocating refs to games and that league and cup results are recorded. It is also the place for Red and Yellow card reporting!
To make sure we keep on top of things, our own personal idiot (no names no pack drill) has created our own Idiots Guide to WTR - so click and enjoy!
"IF IN DOUBT SIT THEM OUT"
Player safety must always be the No 1. priority for every referee. It is important that all of us stay up to date with all current thinking in this important area. World Rugby has issued new guidance on concussion and all referees are asked to go to the links below to ensure they are fully informed. A pocket concussion recognition guide is also available on the link and I for one will be downloading and printing this to add to my match day notes for every game. The additional link to Sports Scotland's guide on how to recognise concussion is also very useful; again please download it and act on the guidance
Join your fellow refs and coaches to get the latest insights on the game, gain some ideas on how to improve your reffing and enjoy some banter!
