Mackay Touch Referee Life Members

Doug Sommerfeld

Life Member - 1985

Doug was a noted Rugby League referee for many years. Doug switched to Touch around 1975/6 and was a driving force to set standards in the A mens competition. He refereed until about 1985, attending several NQ champions. Doug was a fair but no nonsense ref who had no hesitation in resting players, often for several weeks if they abused referees or showed utter disrespect for the rules of the game.  Doug was a great mentor for many young referees. Doug is now a serious lawn bowls player.
