Meet the Ref @ Stoke RFC

Members of the SRUSR Executive Committee accompanied by RFU MODO Claire Antcliffe visited Stoke RFC on the evening of 5 September 2019 for the very first Meet the Ref session.

Initiated by SRUSR Chairman, Paul Daniels, it is intended that such meetings will provide an opportunity for SRUSR referees to meet and talk with local club representatives, including coaches, players and administrators.

This will allow an exchange of views and to find out, at first hand, exactly what each is looking for from the other and how SRUSR can support coaching and playing at clubs in Staffordshire. This could involve how best to support the referees in the Mini and Junior Section after they passed their Level 1 refereeing course or how to assist the 1st XV to reduce their penalty count.

Each session should allow for local clubs to ask the questions that they want to ask and to request the support that they want.

If you would like further information, please email Paul Daniels at
