Welcome to the Referees Section.

Referees are a vital part of the game of Rugby and essential to the club. We aim to provide referees who are of a high standard and who will ensure that the game is played within the Laws and spirit of the game. We aim to provide training to those who wish to become referees and for the further development of existing referees. We will publish news and comments from our referees, as well as appointments to club games and 4th Official duties to the 1st Team.

Welcome to the 2011/2012 Season

Dear All

Welcome to the Referee Section for the 2011/2012 Season.

Last season we were delighted to be awarded the RFU President’s Award for the Best Referee Section at a club, which is very prestigious. Pete Paterson and other referees in the Section have worked hard over many seasons to reach this point and the Ealing Referee Section is regarded very highly by other clubs and the RFU for the training that we provide to our club referees, the quality of the refereeing at our club and also for the number of referees we have been able to train and introduce to the London Society of Referees.
