All appointments for Referees must be made via the Senior List Appointer or Service Area Secretaries. Please do not embarrass a referee by approaching them directly.
There are two levels of booking a referee for rugby union within the Army and Combined Services, who appoints to the fixture will depend upon the level of the game:
- Within the UK and other military areas, Service Area Secretaries (SAS) appoint to games at Level 8 and below.
- Senior List Appointer appoints to Level 7 and above.
- All Team Administrators are to be aware that is their responsibility to contact the nominated referee at least 72 hours prior to the game, to confirm availability, pitch location, kick-off time, playing strips of both teams and any relevant competition regulations.
Listed below are the nominated contacts for booking a referee:
