Ernest's rise up the officiating ladder began in 2016 when he was appointed to FIH World league Round 1 in Suva, Fiji. Fiji and Oceania were looking to develop more Competition Managers, as well as volunteer Judges and Ernest was appointed.

He became OHF CDO's Gill Gemming's right hand man and before the end of the tournament, as Gill got busy with Oceania meetings, Ernest got the chance to run the event together with an expereinced team led by TD Dr. Jeff Brown. 

Ernest spent time on the bench as a Judge to give him a full understanding of all the roles and his rapid progress was rewarded with an appointment to FIH World League Rd 2 in Bangladesh as a Judge in 2017. Ernest did well in Bangladesh and was appointed to officiate in every game except the first.

OHF and Fiji looks forward to seeing Ernest involved in other international appointments in 2018/19.
