Grand final appointments are now online.
Please check your appointments carefully as all appointments for the remaining three weekends have been uploaded. Due to the limited number of games over the coming weekends some referees may not have been appointed however they will still be considered as available to cover late withdrawals during the week.
Congratulations to those who have secured a grand final centre.
All appointed referees should read the grand final instructions carefully. In particular, note that you must arrive at the meeting point for your game at least 45 minutes before the game or your appointment may be re-assigned.
Parking on the day can be very challenging so you need to allow extra time for this. At Meadowbank do not park on the grass beside the road even if you see others there - Council officers are usually out in force on the day too and referees chancing it have been fined.
Tips of the week
Read Law 10 to refresh your knowledge of kicks from the penalty mark and make sure you understand the use of Temporary Dismissal and implement the procedures correctly.
Come along to the grounds early if you are interested in an extra run - each year we have a few no- shows and those on hand get the chance to pick up an extra grand final.
Craig has the phone and email duties for the weekend.
