Dear Members,



You’ll be pleased to know that we are officially launching our new website today Tuesday 25 April 2017. ANZAC day. www.nswrlra.com


The website is user friendly, provides a lot of information and is a fresh new look for the New South Wales Referees Association.


Feedback is welcome in any form. Meeting your needs is the goal, suggestions are invited as once we see ourselves sitting comfortably it’s a signal to re-evaluate again in the spirit of continuous improvement.


You will see new graphics, links to everything you need and recognition of our current sponsors in Brydens Lawyers.


Also you will note all of our social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram have all been refreshed.


The site link addresses are below.

This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


A new free APP/ICON for your smartphone with guidance as to how to install it will be forthcoming soon. The benefits are that you will be one touch from the appointments page; good for partners, family and friends to easily access where you are if you so chose to install it.


You are absolutely encouraged to follow all platforms and engage appropriately through social media. It’s an opportunity to share moments, images as well as promoting refereeing to people who want to start their career regardless of age.


The new website is user friendly, lifts our profile and embraces all levels of refereeing in keeping with the tradition of the New South Wales Referees Association.


Important to note that launching a new website without delay is highly beneficial for a number of reasons:



1. Having you use the site allows you to make suggestions, which can be tweaked at anytime, plus it allows our association to identify any wrinkle that may present.



2. We increase the exposure of our proud sponsors as they are prominently placed on the site and link directly to their website.


Any feedback is welcome at any time.


New South Wales Rugby League Referees Association.

Flash Back Friday

April 21, 2017

For today's Flashback Friday, the New South Wales Rugby League Referees Association brings you a snapshot of refereeing history.


1987 First Grade Squad. #NSWRLRA #flashbackfriday #fbf




Bob Fulton makes a point to referee Mick Stone after a match featuring Manly in 1985. His passionate support for the team he coached often put Fulton on a collision course with referees. #flashbackfriday #fbf




Denis Braybrook and Doug Winton on Standby. Witty little knitters! #flashbackfriday #nswrlrefs #NSWRLRA #1980sSemiFinals




CRL TV caught up with Kara Lee Nolan to ask her about the opportunities that are available for those interested in joining the refereeing ranks.

Shayne Hayne launches a new program designed to lift the standard of whistle-blowers across the board.
