• Referee Web Award Results

    The main Referee Web Awards Voting is over, our members looked at websites and judged on looks, content, Referee usefulness and Public Relations ability, as well as other things. To be eligible the website must be:-

    • Based on it's own site (i.e. not part of a unions site, RugbyFirst & RugbyNet are acceptable as they can be customised to be their own site).
    • It must be free for referees to use.
    • It must be predominantly for referees (applies to non society/association sites).

    The top website from each country (unless a country has less than two websites) also get that countries Website of the year, and a public vote to be commenced shortly (yes, public, so anyone can vote on it) to decide the Best Referee Society/Association Website of 2011.

As stated before webmasters will receive their awards in their email this week, there is no requirement to link to us in order to display it, it is purely an appreciation of the efforts. For those that didn't get gold, we hope that it will serve as encouragement to improve for next years awards.

      All emails have now been sent.

      If you have not received an email, it means the contacts section on your website is not working properly, or is sending people to the wrong place.

      Not good!
