Welcome to the Hampshire Rugby Union Referees' Society
The Hampshire Society provides a competent, trained referee to the county's Adult, Colts, & School 1st XV matches. Like many other Societies in England, we have a shortage of trained referees, so all new recruits interested in officiating at all levels of the Game are welcome.
We work with the RFU and our Clubs to recruit new referees and all are given regular training and development after attending an RFU’s Entry Level Referee Award course.
The next ELRA course will be announced shortly. Cost £40 (your club could pay). Click here.
To join the Society and get started as a Society referee, contact Rob McCaffrey-Thomson at on 07500 894299 or at the alternative email:
Late Cancellations after 12:00 noon on a Friday
November 2013 - you will all be aware that late cancelations are a great inconvenience to both theSociety and you the referee. So that we are able to monitor the situation it is imperative that Terry & Tony are aware if matches are called off, they should be informed of the reason (home, away side or the pitch conditions) and the time you received the call. This will enable the Society to take the issue up with the clubs in question when required.
Regards, Tim Bailey (Hon Sec HRURS)
