Code of Conduct
All registered referees and referee administrators in South Africa, whether on any of the SARU Panels/Squads or not, are subject to SARU and SARRA’s Code of Conduct.
According to Law 6.5.a, the referee is the sole judge of fact and Law during a match. As this is an onerous and responsible position, it’s vitally important that the referee conduct him or herself beyond reproach at all times.
Rugby is one of the greatest teams' sports, with laws providing for players of different physiques, skills, genders, and ages. The brochure below outlines the appropriate behavior expected from match officials, coaches, players, and spectators when it comes to junior rugby (the same principle applies to senior rugby).
