|Welcome to the 2014 Taranaki Rugby season.|
By now the pre season training will be underway and the gear will be getting dusted off in prep for another crack at 2014.
back to all referees, to any new or intending members looking forward
to refereeing rugby in the Naki, to those who are supporters and
sponsors as well.
Our facebook page has been a great source of
information for all referees with local, national and international
content, photos, articles, videos and a great way to keep up to date
with the "whats happening" in refereeing. You will find the link to the
facebook page above and to the right, or if you go to www.facebook.com
you can search Taranaki Rugby Referees, of course you have to be signed up first, if you are unsure Im am sure there are plenty of people who can help you with this.
a number of new law variations this year and all referees, and
yes assessors and coaches should be aware of these changes.
please take the time to familiarise yourself with these so you
are giving your best to the game and allowing all teams and players the
best opportunity to play the game to enjoy it.
More information will be forthcoming either via email from Rob Lord or posted on here or the facebook page.
So happy refereeing, looking forward to seeing you all on the paddock.

Lets get kicked off on time . . .
reminder to referees about getting games kicked off on time. When
talking with team managers and captains prior to the game, remind them
they need to be on the field and ready to kick off at the time
prescribed, not just leaving the changing rooms then.
This is part
of our role to ensure that happens. Often other games may on that field
after , or referees are required to run touch.
Often you will
need to be running teams onto the field from their changing rooms with
sometimes up to 5 minutes beforehand, as it can take that long for them to
finally come out, or it can take that long to make it to the field.
referees must have attended a rugby smart
taking the field.
There are videos of the rugby smart available for you to view if you
have not attended yet..
The IRB has launched
new interactive website http://www.irblaws.com which teaches and tests the
Laws of the game. It is hoped that this tool will revolutionize Rugby
