Junior Rugby (Under 6-10) do not have registered referees formally appointed to their fixtures by the Bay of Plenty Rugby Union. Instead, all teams are required to provide associate referees and the home team is initially responsible for appointing a referee. If they can’t provide a referee, the visiting team is asked and if they can’t provide an associate referee, then anyone can referee the game but the kids go to uncontested scrums.
as a registered referee, you’re allowed to referee junior rugby so long as it doesn’t interfere with your bay of plenty rugby union appointments. just be sure that you’re not standing on anyone’s toes first. if a coach from the home team asks, then by all means go for it.
If you’re ever contacted directly from a club or school OR anyone to referee a match other than Under 6-10 (under 11 from 2018), please direct them to the Bay of Plenty Rugby Referees Forms and Information tab. There they will find a link to an online form titled, Referee Request Form. It is vital to the appointment process that all requests for referees come through the correct channel; that is the submission of the online Referee Request form.
