The search for new referees is underway across the province and the next course for new members of the Munster Association of Referees has been set for Saturday, August 27.

The course will be held at the Charleville Park Hotel and you can register by emailing olly.hodges@irfu.ie

This will be the first in-person course for new referees since August 2019 after subsequent courses were moved to an online format due to Covid-19.

Rugby referees have the best seat in the house, and if keeping fit (referees run six miles in an 80 minute match), travelling, taking part in a lively social scene or getting an adrenaline rush is your idea of a great pastime, rugby refereeing could be for you.

As well as the obvious benefits, a referee’s constant study of the game enriches the enjoyment of this lifetime sport.

If you’re interested in taking the next steps and want to join the referee pathway, please register your interest with Munster Referee Development Manager Olly Hodges by email olly.hodges@irfu.ie or phone 086-8596289.
