VALE PAUL GOENER

It is with great sadness that I bring to members and friends of the NSWRLRA the passing of Honorary Associate Member for Life PAUL GOENER.

Paul had a major impact on the structure of refereeing in Queensland after a very successful career as a Referee and International Touch Judge. 

Paul was instrumental in the formation of the QRL Referees Association in the 1970s and served for many years as President. His vision, foresight, enthusiasm and passion for refereeing holds a very special place to this day. 

A coach and mentor to many of all ages, Pauls understanding of the role of referees within the game assisted the respect within the game that sometimes is hard for referees to gain. This ability to interact and communicate without politics greatly impressed the NSWRLRA and its members and led to Paul being elevated to Honorary Associate Member for Life. A greatly respected member.
