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.
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.
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.
