Just a short note to say Good Luck to all our referees for the new season.   It's going to be tough, especially in view of the new laws....and the fact that you don't have the benefit of appointed touch judges and video replays !

To the players and spectators may I say this. Our refs are all unpaid volunteers. 40p per mile petrol money, just doesn't cover the cost of travelling to games. They try their best, and yes they make mistakes.... just as players and coaches do.

There are fewer referees available this season. Several 2nd & 3rd team games will have no officially appointed referees. 

So please support our referees this season. Have a quick chat, a nice word and a "thank you ref" after the game. Maybe even by him/her a pint.
They were all players themselves, before they had the courage to pick up the whistle !
