Here are some hints to assist member’s preparation in the event of an ARRA referee having an “incident” at a match that requires attendance to the ARFU judiciary meeting at Alexandra Park L3 on Tuesday evenings.

Very few Red Cards now result in an invite to attend a Judicial meeting. A Red Card carries an automatic 2 week suspension for the player unless either the perpetrator feels 2 weeks is not justified (and they appeal) or Judiciary feel 2 weeks is not sufficient (and they call a hearing). In either case you will receive an email invite to the arranged judicial hearing.
