Rugby match officiating course conducted successfully

On Saturday over here at Nittawela, on a request made by Central Province Rugby Football Union Sri Lanka rugby conducted a WR L 1 match officiating course under the guidance of licensed World Rugby Educator Wimal Perera – World Rugby Trainer Dilroy Fernando. and from Central Province RFU Y.M.S Ratnayake and S Madugalle were the coordinators. It was great to see seventeen participants at the course, out of which seven were Trintiy ruggerites and hope they get seriously involved in refereeing as I saw huge potential in these young ruggerites.

If I am correct the last Trinitian to have been involved in refereeing at the highest level was S.W. Chang who handled the whistle in 1980’s and 1990’s said DilroyFernando – Consultant Training and Education at Sri Lanka Rugby. The rest of the participants were five girls and three boys from Matale, one each from Nawalapitiya,Hatton, Walapane

This course, module aims to provide learners who have an interest in becoming a match official with a basic level of understanding of how to referee. Upon completion of this module they should be ready to undertake the face-to-face Introduction to Match Officiating (Pre-L1) course delivered by licensed Educators. Upon successful completion of both the online module and face-to-face course participants should be able to demonstrate basic officiating skills and to officiate aspects of the game in a modified context.
