Refereeing - Put Your Hand Up

Do you want to see the game from the best seat in the house?! Get Involved - become a rugby referee!

Apart from playing, refereeing is one of the most satisfying contributions you can make to the game of rugby. Whether you are a current player, recently retired, or involved in rugby at any level, refereeing is a great way to give back to the game you love.

Refereeing a closely-fought game of rugby is one of the most exhilarating things you can do, the pressure of making the correct decision in an instant is a huge adrenaline rush for most referees. You could join that band of decision makers.

It’s increasingly common for players at school to take up the whistle as they realise they perhaps don’t have the physical attributes to make it to the top as a player. The Hong Kong Rugby Union offers development opportunities for referees of all ages.

For current players and officials, refereeing is a great way to give something back to the Game and to help widen participation in the sport and make Hong Kong Rugby A Game for All.
