    @ Decorily - it's my 2nd ever game. My first was an inter club friendly over the close season. But this will be my first competitive match to ref.
    @SimonSmith - It's U-16 Club match.

    @Dids - I may make 1 or 2 boo boos in that regard for Fk offences but I'm ok with what are Srum offences and what are PK offences. These tend to be most of what I see when playing.

    @Beckett50 - "Sledging?" not heard that term before. Can you shed some light please?

    Sledging is a term used in cricket to describe the practice whereby some players seek to gain an advantage by insulting or verbally intimidating the opposing player. The purpose is to try to weaken the opponent's concentration, thereby causing them to make mistakes or underperform.[1] It can be effective because the batsman stands within hearing range of the bowler and certain close fielders; and vice versa. The insults may be direct or feature in conversations among fielders designed to be overheard. The term has also been used in other sports, as when the tennis player Nick Kyrgios insulted his opponent, Stan Wawrinka, by referring to a purported encounter between another player and the latter's girlfriend

    The reason I ask.

    I've done U16 Club and U16 School. This may be an unfortunate generalization (West of Scotland and Eastern Counties)

    Schools tend to have better leadership at Captain. Kings Ely when I reffed them at U18 had one of the best Cs I've worked with - decisive, respectful, and had the command of his troops. The Club captains...less so.

    Unfortunate truth: Private Schools tend to have better leaders on field

    I actually believe that 'Captains' only start to 'exist' at U16s and I wouldn't be placing too much trust in them.


    A good level of U16s game can be far better than a low level adult game....
    Not to be taken for granted! !

    Interesting that you are appointed to U16 in your first game

    In Sydney you would have to have been refereeing at least a year, probably 2, before you go to that age group - they would generally start an adult ref with U13 or so

    For 16A's you would have to be one of the top dozen or so junior rugby referees in Sydney (we have separate societies and gradings for referees who do junior and senior games)

    I think Arabchief is talking about his first society appointment and in Scotland these are normally adult (men and women) (not the top level) league and cup games and U18 league and cup games and, I think, U16 cup games.

    Ok, I read it as being the first real game he had refereed.

    Thought so

    Like I said, here an U16 would be your 20-30th game at least, after numerous coaching and assessment observations
