Match Day Staff
Welcome to the Match Day Staff strand.
The online modules in this strand aim to:
- introduce the different roles and function of Match Day Staff (Match Commissioner, Citing Commissioner, Judicial Officer) at Regional or World Rugby tournaments
- prepare participants for attending our face-to-face courses.
Completion of these online modules are a pre-requisite for attending our corresponding face-to-face Match Day Staff courses.
The purpose of the training is to harness your legal / rugby knowledge and help you apply it within the disciplinary regime with a view to driving consistent decision-making in line with the Laws, Regulations and refereeing interpretations in the modern game.
This programme aims to develop Match Commissioners for both World Rugby and regional tournaments through a competency-based training programme which builds knowledge and skills.
This resource provides guidance for Citing Commissioners to discharge their responsibilities in a fair and balanced manner. It also provides clarity to other stakeholders of the game with regards to the role and parameters of the job.
