Any referee who is unable to attain 17.1 (other than those who have already attained 17.1) will not be considered for premier grade appointments, subject to the Appointments Board Policy.
Application of the Appointments Board Policy
The Appointments Board have to satisfy a number of criteria when appointing referees to Premier Grade. One of the most important criteria is the minimum fitness standard of 17.1 in the yo-yo test. The Appointments Policy includes provision for the Appointments Board to make appointments to Premier Grade when resources are limited and there are insufficient referees who meet all of the criteria. In such situations, the Appointments Board will have a choice between:
Any judgement is made in consultation with the TDG Referee Coaches and the Executive Committee to ensure transparency of the decision. These decisions are always taken in the best interests of rugby and the clubs who we serve.
We are more than aware that such an appointment is discouraging for those who have met the fitness requirement but encourage all referees wishing to achieve Premier Grade to read the Appointments Policy to understand all the criteria's and commit to achieving excellence in all areas not just fitness. We are committed to work with and support you in achieving this.
Any referee who wishes to discuss how to achieve their goals, the reasons behind their appointment or appointments in general is welcome to contact any member of the Appointments Board.
