Refereeing Overview

The Brumbies Rugby Referees Department work in conjunction with the ACT Rugby Referees Association (ACTRRA), Southern Inland Rugby Referees Association (SIRRA) and South Coast Rugby Referees Association to provide referees for both junior and senior competitions in the ACT, Southern Inland (Wagga Wagga) and South Coast (Batemans Bay) areas.

ACT Referees also have opportunities to advance through the ranks quickly, with some of our referees involved in Super Rugby matches, International matches (both senior and junior) and National Championships.


We are always looking for new referees to officiate at games, from Under 9’s through to Seniors. You can referee once or twice a weekend, once a month, or only as a fill-in if you would rather. You can referee games near your home or where you or your family members/friends etc will be playing that day – we are completely flexible around you and your commitments!

If you haven’t refereed before, never fear- we have courses to teach you all about refereeing a game of rugby. For those who have played rugby, there is also an opportunity to use Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) to move you up the ranks towards senior refereeing.

If you have previously been a referee, with the ACTRRA or another organisation and would like to take up the whistle again, please get in contact with us. We need as many people as possible to service games in the ACT and its surrounding regions.

Referees are also paid for each game they officiated each weekend. It’s a great way to have some fun, give back to the community and make a little extra money on the side.

We provide kit of a jersey, shorts, socks, whistle and red/yellow cards.
