ERU Referee Abuse Policy

Please click the link in header above to read the new Referee Abuse Policy from the Edmonton Rugby Union (ERU) and the Edmonton Rugby Union Referees Society (ERURS). This policy is effective immediately and applies to all coaches and spectators.

Player abuse of referees will continue to be dealt with according to the World Rugby and ERU Rules and Regulations.

The ERU Club Presidents have committed their support of this policy.  The clubs have pledged to work with the ERU and ERURS to curb referee abuse.   Be reminded that it is the CLUB’S responsibility to control spectators as per item 2.3 in the Rugby Alberta Rules & Regulations

We ask that if you see any instances of referee abuse (or volunteer/staff abuse), that you let your board members know so that it can be dealt with.  Or speak to the coach or spectator yourself if you feel safe to do so.  If we do not curb this trend we will continue to lose referees and the game will suffer.
