International Referees

The referees, so many times forgotten, are essential. Sometimes controversial, they're essential to the game. They make mistakes, just like any human being, but their hit rate is better than any player’s. To all teams and players, we ask you to always respect them.

We invite officials from different countries and always ask visiting teams if they want to bring one in their touring parties.

We've had referees coming from Portugal, Brazil (Brazilian Rugby Federation), United Kingdom (Manchester, Gloucester and Bristol referee’s societies), Zimbabwe (Zimbabwe Rugby Union), Germany (German Rugby Federation) and Spain (Madrid Rugby Referees Association).
