Dear NSWRRA Members,
Please find below a message below from President David Marshall in relation to the latest COVID-19 restrictions.
All Just a quick note in regard to the escalating restrictions in the Sydney metro area and the 7 x local council area hotspots and rugby for the weekend. Clearly the Government position is evolving. Similarly, the position of the Office of Sport in regard to Community Sport is currently being worked through with NSWRU which will allow NSWRU to provide clarity on the Government advice prior to the weekend in regard to our rugby games.
Some of you may still have concerns over COVID and/or travelling to 1 of the 7 x COVID hotspots – this is OK and we encourage and support all our referees to make decisions in this environment which match their need based on the advice provided.
Under the circumstances, if you feel you are not able to referee as appointed please reject your appointment notice and provide some information in that rejection that may assist the appointments officers – ie unwilling to referee due to COVID; unwilling to referee in one of the 7 x LCA’s – this will help them re-appoint as the picture becomes clearer towards the end of the week.
Watch this space!
President – NSWRRA
