Appointments Process
The NSWRRA members are appointed to a wide range of matches across the greater Sydney region including Premier, Suburban, Schools, and a myriad of Sevens and pre season competitions. These appointments are made by the Management Committee and distributed by Tom Chadwick at NSWRU.

Currently all senior appointments are sent directly to members via Referee Appointment System (RAS).

If referees are unavailable for their appointments, they should contact the Referee Appointments Officer, Luke Rogan as early as possible.


Timely advice of unavailability is key to ensuring the appointments process runs as smoothly as possible. Members can advise their unavailability in two ways:

RAS – the Referee Appointments System allows members to input their unavailability into the system themselves via a public portal. Instructions on how to use this portal can be found in the NSWRRA Appointments Procedures document see this link to resource pages.

Email – Members can email their unavailability to Tom Chadwick at
