SRU Refereeing Courses

Regardless on your view of referee's, and we all have one, one thing we all we have to agree, is that without them we wouldn't have any rugby to watch, its the easiest thing in the world to criticise them, but when the critics are asked or offered the chance to step onto the pitch and take over its very rare that they do.


We have a good group of referee's at Biggar who cover Mini, midi  and where required Senior games although at the younger age the correct term is now to be called a Game Coach and its a good way to try and teach and encourage youngsters to learn more about the game.


As always some additional volunteers would be ideal and therefore if you are interested in helping out the SRU are running some courses for new refs and also have information on their website.

so, if you fancy getting on the other side of the whistle this is the SRU Sales pitch?
