4.0 out of 5 stars Start refereeing by buying this book 28 Feb 2004
I bought this book after refereeing for about half a season (about 1 year ago). It has served me well and I firmly believe that it is the techniques and examples shown in this book which got me to the standard at which I was able to referee a final in my first season (and I was only 15 at the time!).
If you want to learn the basics and help develop them whether you're a society ref or just a social ref you must buy this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Referee considers RFU guide 8 Feb 2000

This is very good reference for all current and aspiring rugby union referees. Useful tips and handy hints are punctuated with clear and concise explanation of the Laws of the Game.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great book - very informative! 20 Sep 2009

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have watched rugby since I can remember and looked online for a refereeing book with which I hoped to study the game and eventually enter amateur refereeing.

As an officially sanctioned book, it is incredibly thorough and even more importantly, accessible and user-friendly.

A must if you're getting into the nitty-gritty of the world's best sport!

This book is redundant due to the changes that have been made in the laws since its publication. Wouldn't bother with it.
