REFEREE RESPECT ROUND
This Saturday 12th May 2018, NRL Victoria competitions and clubs will get behind the Referee Respect Round for 2018.
We are acknowledging and celebrating our terrific referees during this round, all we are asking of clubs this weekend is as follows:
- Make a conscious effort for both teams to meet in the middle of the field prior to kick off (after card checks), all players and coach. Shake hands prior to kick off.
- Each player to shake the referee’s hand following the match.
- RESPECT RESPECT RESPECT our officials.
- Please encourage all spectators to direct only POSITIVE comments towards officials, players and other stakeholders.
These are only very small gestures, and something that should already be happening at our games, however if all team officials/players in your club to do it this weekend, then maybe it will continue at other games during the year as well.
