Referee Grand Slam

The Referee Grand Slam is really only for Referees from the non participating nations, as any referee from Australia, New Zealand or South Africa only need referee two games to complete the slam. And as such, quite a few have done it, a couple have even done it in one tournament.

However the for referees from non participating countries the target is to referee every game home and away.

Only one referee has achieved the Grand Slam and that is Alain Rolland from Ireland. As the tournament now changes to a four team format with the inclusion of Argentina, Alain Rolland will probably be the only person to complete the referee grand slam.

2012 Onwards

From 2012 the Tri Nations has been expanded to include Argentina and is to be called "The Rugby Championship".
