Become a Match Official
Match Officials (Referee, Touch Judge, Match Manager) play a very important role in our game. Being a Match Official will allow you to develop new skills, improve fitness and make new friends.

Above all, being a Match Official allows you make a positive contribution to the great sport of Rugby League.

Pathways exist for all match officials - from Mini/Mod Football to International Rules and High Performance. Courses are regularly run across the country. Please contact your District Co-ordinator for course details and dates.
