The Free Sate Rugby Referee Society has embarked on some formal side-line training for their side-line personnel which forms part of their 2020 strategy to upskill and accredit their side-line personnel used to service SARU, PRO 14 and World Rugby competitions and tournaments.
The timekeepers started things off on 1 September 2020 for their training in the use of the manual and software timekeeping versions to cater for any unforeseen circumstances. All timekeepers (six in total) involved were also issued with their Free State Cheetahs Face Masks.
The next training session to follow will be for their statisticians, player movement recorders and technical zone managers.
All training materials was provided by the SARU: Referees Department.
