After an incident in the England v Wales match at the weekend, World Rugby has announced an immediate amendment to Law 3 to stipulate that a match cannot restart until a player leaving the field of play for a blood injury or Head Injury Assessment (HIA) has been temporarily replaced. In the World Cup warm up match, Pascal Gauzere allowed play to restart before the interchange had been fully completed. [ 361 more words ]

Advantage Rugby Referee

I FOUGHT THE LAW & THE LAW WON #30: At a penalty goal attempt by Team A, the ball hits the goal post. B15 catches the ball directly from the goal post and calls a "MARK" as she is tackled from the field-of-play into in-goal where she grounds the ball. B15 is injured and cannot continue.

Vacation Beach Portraits

The 1st Annual Vampire 7โ€™s Sand Rugby Tourney on Flora-Bama was such a huge success. We captured some fierce competition and some great friends enjoying a Social sport.
โ€œYes. It is barefoot beach rugby behind the Flora-Bama. Whatโ€™s not to like about that,โ€™โ€™ says tourney director Dale Wood.
Dale Wood organized the tourney with help from his twin brother, Dean Wood, to honor Alex Sharland, president of the Deep South Rugby Referees Assn. and a good friend. They said it was their way of honoring a refereeing mentor.
Sharland, who is currently going through treatments for leukemia, is also recovering from heart surgery and prostate cancer.

The Technical Zone is a key piece in making rugby more professional and appealing to families and administrators. Thanks to all of those who came out to the WPL All-star weekend to get training and practice this fun part of the game. Big shout out to the referees who were also very patient and helped the crew learn. How are you improving your technical zones for your competition?

The entire ARURS is saddened by the news and passing of fellow referee Denis "John" Hogan. No one is taken too late from this world, always too early. That was the case with John. He touched more lives than we all will know with his rugby knowledge and his presence on the pitch. He contributed to the development of many new referees starting out and guided them. He was a real no nonsense referee and took even less back talk. Most of all he was our friend, brother and he will be missed.

Cheers John and we raise our drinks to your memory.
