PRU / MARFU PLAYOFF MATCHES

  • Playoff Matches: referee costs are paid by PRU / MARFU.
  • Lower side matches played in conjunction with playoff matches are the responsibility of the participating teams. The total match fee is to be shared by the two teams as they agree.

 

FINES / CREDITS

  • Clubs will not be fined for a game cancellation or problem it has not created, (e.g., unplayable fields) if they have conducted themselves responsibly.
  • Visiting clubs will be held responsible and charged, rather than the home club, if it caused the problem.
  • Clubs are required to contact their assigned officials at least 72 hours prior to kickoff (unless the assignment is made with less time than that). After that, the official(s) may be reassigned.
  • If a club fails to make timely contact and their official is reassigned, they will still be billed for that assignment. If another official is then requested and assigned, the club will be billed for both assignments.
  • If a club cancels a match with less than 48 hours notice, they will still be billed for the assignment.
  • If a club cancels a match without advising the official(s) before they have left for the site, the club will be billed double.
  • Should an official become unavailable after contact and without replacement, PSRFR will credit the club for 1/2 of the fee (in addition to no charge for the assignment).
  • Should a referee fail to show without notice for a match after contact, PSRFR will credit the club for a full fee (in addition to no charge for the assignment).

 

FREEBIES

  • Senior referees will be made available at no charge at club practices/meetings to discuss rugby law and its application. Make requests to the President.
  • Referees will be made available at no charge to officiate informal intra-squad scrimmages at club practices. Make requests to the Allocations Secretary.
