Development & Training
Match Officials Development
Being a referee is often a very challenging and unpredictable experience. All match officials are always learning and training and development is a vital part of any match officials routine.
Perhaps the first place to start, and often referred to throughout a match officials career is the laws of the game document. The current version can be found by visitng The laws of the game section of the RFL website.
In 2012 the RFL has introduced a series of new local training sessions which are available to all referees and budding referees.
