    The correct name is Level 2 - Refereeing the 15 as side game. This is in line with the new Level 1 - Refereeing children course, and I believe there will eventually be a Level 3 Society Refereeing course. This is all part of trying to bring refereeing qualifications into line with the IRB courses.

    The course hasn't changed that much. More up to date content ("that with which I will not putup" has gone ), more emphasis on practical, less on classroom, compulsory pre-course homework and compulsory homework in between the two days. Also you have to be signed off as competent at each stage.

    This is the workbook content.

    Is this the replacement for ELRA?

    I did the NPC 1&2 (probably one of the last ones) - as I did my part 2 the ELRA had just started.

    Sorry Phil I posted mine whilst you were still editing - I can see that it is.

    Yes it is.

    The emphasis is still on "how to referee", not "what to referee".

    An ELRA attendee showed me the DVD

    I was most embarrassed about the fact it was a game in Yorkshire and as such, given the level, I assume it was a YRS or YRFU RS as it was then referee.

    I really enjoyed ELRA.
    One of the highlights was playing a game, the referees on the course, and taking it in turns to the be the ref.

    It was like any other game of friendly rugby -- we were twenty or so refs, or ages from 17-57, playing 10 a side, randomly allocated to reds and blues, with absolutely nothing at stake... yet two minutes after the whistle went a game of competitive, physical rugby broke out!

    I hope that bit is still an element


    I still see a couple of the people on my course, just last week opne was watching from the sidelines as I reffed his club.
