The content of this page is primarily for the use of members of the Ulster Society of Rugby Football Referees (USRFR: The Society).
Rugby in Ulster is officiated by members of the Ulster Society of Rugby Football Referees.
As at 1st June 2017 we had 135 qualified referees, 11 trial members and 39 referee assessors along with a pool of non-active members. We operate as an integral part of Ulster Rugby and are administered by a set of professionals from the branch offices.
Refereeing can be described as an art rather than a job; it is dynamic and tactile whilst needing empathy with the players and strength of resolve to control a potential volatile environment. The society operates a number of meetings, training sessions and workshops throughout the province to develop the skills and knowledge needed to efficiently manage a game of Rugby. Many of these are open to any rugby lover to attend.
