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.
We certainly hope none of our officials need to get involved with this but in the event that you do, please consider the following information:
