    RugbyRefs.com has once again been contacted by the West Coast RFU www.westcoastrfu.com as they have a shortage of refs at present.

    In a bid to improve the situation they are looking for referees aged 30 & under from the UK, Ireland, & Australia and can assist with working holiday visas, finding employement, and finding accommodation

    The West Coast RFU is very experienced in bringing players to their union, and will use this experience to assist willing volunteers. The West Coast RFU are more than happy to do the same for any refs that would like to come out here for a rugby adventure.


    So if you, or any referees you know are interested in an exiting Kiwi adventure, Adam Gilshnan of the West Coast RFU would love to talk to you. Their season is starting soon, and the club season ends in late July.

    Please note, the West Coast RFU are not in a position to pay referees, as they are an amateur organisation, but if any refs were to come out they'd have a great time, experience a different lifestyle and improve the West Coast's, and their own skills.

    If you think this opportunity would suit you then contact Adam using his email address: adamgilsh@hotmail.com, He'd be happy to phone/skype you to talk more about it.

    Adam is very skilled at getting working holiday visa's etc, and is always keen to help with any assistance, and to share any advice.

    Don't delay, take this opportunity whilst it lasts, it doesn't come along for referees very often.

    SANZAR today announced an 18-man strong referee team for the 2013 Super Rugby competition.

    The announcement includes five new referees to the Super Rugby circuit, including Argentinean Francisco Pastrana (pictured, who controlled his first Super Rugby match in 2012).

    The team includes the Southern Hemisphere's top performers, with Craig Joubert, Steve Walsh and Chris Pollock (returning from injury) heading up a strong team.

    "The recent form of some of our referees in the Test environment has given us an excellent senior group within the team, and we have been able to include a healthy number of young referees," SANZAR Game Manager Lyndon Bray said.

    "They have been selected with an eye to the future, both for Super Rugby and Test rugby."

    Along with the Argentinean Pastrana, Australia's James Leckie has been recalled to the squad, while Rohan Hoffman (a former professional rugby player), Jason Jaftha from South Africa and Nick Briant from New Zealand get their first taste of Super Rugby with their selections.

    "Along with the five new referees introduced to Super Rugby in 2012, we have a very strong nucleus of younger referees, blended with some of the best in the world at the top of their game."

    The full Super Rugby Referee Team for 2013 is:

    Craig Joubert, Jaco Peyper, Jonathan Kaplan, Lourens van der Merwe, Stuart Berry, Jason Jaftha (South Africa)

    Chris Pollock, Glen Jackson, Garratt Williamson, Jonathon White, Mike Fraser, Nick Briant (New Zealand)

    Steve Walsh, Andrew Lees, Angus Gardner, James Leckie, Rohan Hoffman (Australia)

    Francisco Pastrana (Argentina).

    Pulling through at the tackle

    Thread Starter: AKavanagh614

    Game yesterday. Red player tackled and taken to ground. Blue player, on his feat, contests for the ball and gains possession. As blue player gains possession, red player grabs hold of him and pulls him forward and to ground. Is this allowed? If a ruck is formed (which it hadn't) then this...

    New Score Card design

    Thread Starter: Patrick

    I've been using this one for about 3 years now. I love how simple it is both during the match and after (math...). What do ya' think? Sized for a 4x6 type holder but I had it originally sized for the smaller size wallet also.

    22 Drop Out - Not taken properly

    Thread Starter: Flish

    From my game on Saturday, 22 Drop Out awarded to red, red captain picks up the ball inside the 22, sort of taps it then flings it with no great urgency to a team mate 5m away (at this point I'm thinking this is where they throw it back and forth a bit before deciding where to drop out from) except...
