TRRA 7s IRB “Style” Circuit Announcement

The Texas Rugby Referee Association (TRRA) Referee & Training Organization (RATO) has formed an IRB 7s “style” Circuit and/or a focus group of referees that will officiate at the below tournaments. This IRB 7s “style” Circuit is an unique opportunity for these referees to officiate 7s consistently and to receive feedback/coaching as well. This environment also provides the teams attending the tournaments with consistent officiating at the highest level.

RATO has also elected that these tournaments be used as venues for developing new and/or up and coming referees.
