Positive Sideline Behaviour

By Ian Nathan

A message for all our members, supporters and visitors.

Dear Clubs,

I am reaching out to you regarding the standards Rugby Victoria have when it comes to referee respect.

The Rugby Victoria Board and Executive encourage positive sideline behaviour, particularly towards referees.

Like players, referees will make mistakes. We rely on the referees to officiate our matches and they do not deserve the sideline abuse they sometimes receive. This sort of behaviour is not welcome in Victorian Rugby.

Green Shirt referees are new to officiating and are continually improving. Please be aware of the pathway that they are on and the consideration they deserve.

Should you witness any referee dissent, please inform the Ground Manager immediately to ensure it is reported.

We rely on club representatives to enforce the above and I ask that you please forward this email on to your club community.

Thank you for your assistance.

Dean Gibbons

Rugby Services Manager
