Becoming a Referee

Match officials for Aviva Premiership Rugby are selected from the RFU’s Professional Referee Unit (PRU). The PRU consists of 15 referees and 13 assistant referee and represents the cream of English officials. For each match, four officials (1 referee, 2 assistant referees and a reserve official) are selected by the PRU management team of Ed Morrison, Brian Campsall and Tony Spreadbury. They are joined by a timekeeper and for televised matches a Television Match Official.

The referees in the PRU have worked their way through the refereeing ranks from Society/Federation level, through the regional groups and onto the National Panel of Referees. Their progression through each level is based upon passing a series of exams, their performance at each game measured by a referee assessor and fitness levels.

The assistant referees are a mixture of former PRU referees and assistant referees who have progressed through the AR ranks in the same way as the referees.
