The Game Management Guidelines for 2012 are now finalised. All State Union and competition managers will receive them and they are also available on the ARU website.
These guidelines are an important point of reference for all involved in community rugby throughout Australia. They provide a framework for players, coaches and match officials which emphasise key law interpretations and safety directives. The guidelines have been completed after a consultation process across all states. Key interpretations made at the recent SANZAR referees’ conference and Australian referee’s camp were also included. Once again this year there will be a major focus on the ‘Big 5’ by the referees.

The IRB has announced its match officials list for the second stage of the 2014 IRB Junior World Championships overnight, with two Australians appointed to referee two of the games in New Zealand on Sunday.
We’re excited to announce that Australian Rugby will be moving to a new online system for national competition management and participant registration for the 2014 Rugby Sevens season and the 2015 club Rugby season.
We’re set for an exciting year with plenty to look forward to in 2014, including our Qantas Men’s Sevens team competing in the Commonwealth Games (July), the Women’s Rugby World Cup in France (August) and the launch of a new domestic competition – the National Rugby Championship (August).
