The Express Referee Course scheduled Monday 16 2018

The Express Referee Course scheduled Monday 16 2018

Referee needed in NSW

The express referee course is being run at NSWRU HQ, David Phillips Field on Mon 16 July (i.e. next week) from 6-9:30pm. It’ll be in Mina’s café (end of the building between the Waratahs field and the artificial grass hockey/soccer fields).

The course will prepare attendees to either do Club to Appoint games when NSWRRA is short and cannot cover every game in Sydney, or to referee regular games (whether that be Juniors, Seniors or Schools).

It contains all the content of a normal Foundation course, except that SmartRugby is assumed knowledge. This is an online course which attendees should do prior to Monday night through theRugby Learning Centre. It takes about 90 mins (depending on how thoroughly you do it), and can be done over multiple sitting.

Bayfield Cup – JH & Ling Milestone Games, Game Day Program/Newsletter

Saturday’s local derby will see club legend Josh Holmes become the 12th WRC player to reach the milestone of 150 first grade games.

Josh joined grade in 2005 before moving to the Brumbies. Since his return from the ACT late in the 2009 season Josh has been a key contributor as a player director, juniors coach, club leader and 1st Grade team Captain.

The WRC thank Josh for his dedication, loyalty and commitment into making the Rats the place it is today.

We wish you all the best on your big day..

Also Club stalwart Ling (Lilin) will play her 150th game when she takes the field against Parramatta tomorrow.

Over the last 10 years, Ling has been a positive influence for the Rattettes team both on and off the field. A wonderful club member and contributor from the board, to arranging tours.

Congratulations on this wonderful achievement, the Rats are proud to have you on board.

Ling and the Rattettes will be playing at 11am at Lidcome Oval tomorrow.
