Wellington Rugby Referees Association

Rugby refereeing!  Looking for a new adventure?  If you have been (or still are) a player or a coach or a supporter, give refereeing a go!

Get on-board on a week by week basis or work out how and when you can be involved.  Some of the benefits can be

  • Uniform provided – includes jersey, shorts, socks, bag, tracksuit, whistle, flags, etc.
  • Flexibility - you tell us which days, times and locations you are available. You referee when work, family and other commitments allow.
  • Regular Training, Education and Development (TED) programme.
  • Opportunities to progress through the grades to representative rugby, regional and national squads and higher.
  • Domestic and International referee exchange programme with NZ provincial unions and overseas destinations.
  • Social – Quiz night, guest speakers, etc.
  • Match ticket opportunities including Test Matches, Super Rugby and NPC.

If you have refereed in the past, we would love to have you back!
