General Members Workshop

Monday 26th March 2012

Terenure College RFC


As outlined at various meetings / forums by our President and others, this season we have been concentrating on making sure that these important educational events address the issues that are actually arising for our referees in their game management.

To that end, the Assessor Sub-Committee has conducted an analysis of assessment reports over the season and the following have been identified as predominant matters with which referees could use some direction and advice

  • Authority / Control / Player management
  • Positioning
  • Scrum management

Dave McHugh (IRFU) will address these and other related issues (including Touch Judging) at the workshop.  It promises to be a very valuable, interactive session – for example, in relation to scrum management, Dave will use video clips to demonstrate the do’s and don’ts of sound scrum management

I therefore urge everyone – referees new and (not so) old, assessors, coaches, etc. – to attend and keep your store of refereeing knowledge up to speed.
