Graduates Ready For Next Step
The Association formally recognised its "Class of 2014" at a special presentation held at Sportingbet Stadium on Monday 11 August.
The new level 1 referees along with their referees and partners attended this inaugural event where they were presented with their pink jersey and mixed with the coaching staff and senior referees. The Association has recruited more than 30 new referees this year with all officiating in the upcoming Saturday final series. Coaching & Development Manager Gary Haines has praised the enthusiasm and commitment of the new referees and thanked his coaching staff for their support. "We have recruited a great group of referees, our goal is to retain them long term and hopefully some may go on to NRL level in the future."
