    My tips would be to with getting off to a good start , without revealing too many nerves

    Think carefully about your pre match stuff so that everything is fluent
    Team 1 , studs, PMB
    Captains , toss, chat
    Team 2 studs PMB

    Practice what you are going to say (keep it really short)

    Between now and the game think about the first minute and visualise as many different starts as you can , and your calls

    In front of kicker
    Kicked into touch and QTI taken
    Catchers taken out in the air
    Mail forms and ends unsuccessful

    Etc

    The idea is that whatever happens in first minute you have rehearsed it!

    After that you will he thinking on your feet

Similarly I don't want to be a back seat ref just blowing for the really, really obvious stuff. But I don't want to be too lax that there are some questionable tackles/play.

    Anyone any tips?
    Arabcheif, no offence but you have taken the Referee level 1 course which is aimed at refereeing children, and your first game is going to be an adult match? Have I got that right?

    @Pinky Thanks. @Phil E, the SRU Level 1 course allows me to ref at any level up to Regional division 2 leagues. Kids, through to youths and Adults.

    Thanks for the clarification, I hadn't realised.

    Good advice already given...Number one: Enjoy yourself and don't forget to smile.

    Thumbs up Re: First Match

    Generally in my career so far the times I have been nervous I have performed better. I find they give you the edge you need. A tip I have been given and is commonly thrown around in Australia is the idea of calling only the "clear and obvious". If you have a spare hour this is a great talk by international referee, Angus Gardener! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=voQOOr-Noks
