Affiliated Club & School Referees

Affiliated Club & School Referees

It is IRFU Policy that all matches from U13 upwards are refereed by:

  • Branch Referees or
  • Club & School Affiliate Referees

Club & School Affiliate Referees are not Branch Referees. They are club or school members who are qualified to referee matches involving their own club or school where no branch referee is available or has not been appointed. They usually referee underage games and provide an important function in servicing the game at this level in their club or school.

The IRFU Affiliate Referee Course is now available online via the IRFU’s online education platform, Gainline.
