Join Us


To join NLDRURS as a referee, assessor or club referee, then you need to complete an Application Form.

If you wish to join the society as a referee, assessor or club referee, please complete this application form. Completing the application form does not commit you to joining. Shortly after you complete the application form, someone from the society will get in touch to discuss the next steps and help you find out more.

Once you have completed your application form, you also need to be set up on WhosTheRef and GMS. You can find more information about these here.

Qualifying as a Referee

If you wish to referee outside of your club, or grow your refereeing skills, you need to complete the England Rugby Refereeing Award.

Dates for courses in NLD can be found on this page.

Bookings are taken via the RFU GMS Course Finder here.
