Shortage of rugby referees If you enjoy rugby, becoming a ref- eree could be just the thing for you. Last season referees were appointed to over 800 rugby games in Mangonui, Bay of Islands, Rodney, Northern Wairoa, Hokianga and Whangarei regions and referees are needed for all areas. And it's not just for the boys. Women's rugby, 7s and rippa rugby are all growing, with women's 7s being an Olympic sport for the first time in Rio de Janeiro in 2016. There are opportunities for referees to exchange both nationally and internationally within the refereeing fraternity. Northland Rugby Referees are holding their open day at Marist Rugby Club, Whangarei, on Sunday, March 4 from 10am to 1pm. Call or text 021-639-733 or con- tact Northland Rugby Union.
