West Refs

2017/2018 Season

 

 

 

 

Referee of the Season at e Scottish Rugby Club Awards went to David Sutherland for "his ability to perform both at the top tier of domestic level rugby and age grade internationals, while also supporting the BT Sport Scottish Rugby Academy in the West and assisting elite referees at EPCR matches."

 

WELL DONE DAVID

Whos the Ref www.whostheref.com is the place WRRS 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!

"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
