Appointments


Match official appointments are sent by email from Rugby Xplorer, typically at the beginning of the week for that next weekend. Changes are often made up until Friday evening so please do check your email Saturday morning!

Be sure to click to accept or reject the appoint ASAP (so that referee rearrangement can be done early).

By Thursday they usual settle and we update these lists for your reference: Appointments PDF and Appointments XLSX. Refer to these lists to see who else is at or near your ground that you might be able watch or support in anyway.

Enter your unavailability in Rugby Xplorer

 

If you haven't entered your unavailability in Rugby Xplorer, its pretty likely you'll get appointed to a game. If you then cannot accept that appointment, you will make at least 3 people (up to about 8) very grumpy. 

For step by step guidance see Entering your unavailability in Rugby Xplorer.



Top tips for recording your unavailability:

  • Enter your unavailability ASAP (appointments planning is done over weeks and months, not week to week)
  • Use the website not the app 
  • Always check Referee and Referee Coach boxes (even if you are not an accredited referee coach, you might be appointed in this category to mentor another referee)
  • Always include times as well as dates (you might only be out for the morning, or afternoon, or it could be all weekend).

Annual update @ Quins 20th Mar, 8:30am to 12:30pm

 

Its time to update!

All Victorian referees were requested to attend the annual update held at Harlequins Rugby Club on the 20th March 2021.

In this session we learned of activities and initiatives of the VRRA for the coming season, heard the GMG's first hand from RA's Graham Cooper, and got to know some of your match official team mates better.

The session started at 9am and ran through to 12:30pm.

This presentation outlines what was discussed - the GMGs and what is happening in the VRRA this year in terms of appointments, coaching, community, recruitment and retention and admin.
