The Best Seat in the House

Welcome to Sydney Rugby Referees Association

The Sydney Rugby Referees Association is the peak body for Rugby Union Match Officials in NSW, servicing all senior competitions within the Greater Sydney area. Each week during the season we provide match officials to over 150 Premier, Suburban and school matches.

Sydney Rugby Referees Association has a proud history of our members representing the association on both the international and provincial stages. A list of our members whom have had the honour of officiating internationally are available on this website.

Aiming to be a leader in the establishment of development programs for coaching and match officials, we strive to provide well trained match officials for the betterment of Rugby at all levels of the game.


Our role is to support and promote the game of Rugby and increase participation particularly for those involved as match officials.  We endeavor to create community interest in what being a match official is all about.

These pages have been set up to be a resource and information site for Sydney Rugby Referees. However much of the information will be of interest to all people interested in Rugby.

Club Officials are welcome to refer to this site for matters of Law and policy relating to match officials and the manner in which we approach the game. We welcome any inquires from club officials or those who just want information about our great game.

Being a match official is enjoyable and rewarding.  All are welcome to join our team.  To learn more please contact our President Tim Wills president@nswrugbyreferees.com.au or the NSW Rugby Referees Department 9323 3426.
