    and TBH Id hope that this ranks higher than a "this isn't really important but I'll mention it to you in passing" to a mentor/assessor. It demonstrates a gross lack of understanding of what is actually happening for a start

    - Whistle without signal, then talking to players to explain what you're whistling for, then maybe a halfhearted arm-flap that could be indicating a scrum or a penalty
    - Whistle at a restart kick
    - shouting "Tackle, release" after every single tackle

    I've not really noticed a difference in the matches I've seen and reffed, I have been pleasantly surprised at the relative lack of cards following the new framework though. I still have to ref a lowest-tier match, though.

    This is mandatory at certain junior levels. U11 and U12 I think?

    This is from the U12 regs.

    8. The Tackle, Maul and Ruck:
    a) A “Tackle” occurs when the ball carrier is held by one or more
    opponents and is brought to ground. A ball carrier who is not held
    is not a tackled player and a tackle has not taken place. Opposition
    players who hold the ball carrier and bring that player to ground, and
    who also go to ground, are known as tacklers. Opposition players
    who hold the ball carrier and do not go to ground are not tacklers.
    The tackle must include the use of arms. Where the ball carrier is
    taken to ground, the referee will call “Tackle-Release”.

    In RFU-land it may be compulsory, but not here... I was admittedly forgetting mini rugby I can think of several U12 practices here that would mark a ref out as inexperienced in an adult match!

    And vice versa.... I have never refereed an U12s game and I'm sure I would stand out as a novice at that level! !

    It doesn't really have a manufacturer stamp on it. I got it through a bundle of a refs book and whistle set. I also have an Acme Thunderer that I got from the soc. It's still in the packet ATM, but I'll crack it open for my next game

    This describes more than one referee in my area, and one was my "assigner" until 6-7 years ago.
