RL match officials road show comes to West Yorkshire
Rugby League fans will have the chance to quiz engage Super League match officials and sign up to become a match official themselves at a special event to be staged on May 30 in West Yorkshire.
The RFL is staging a unique road-show in conjunction with Halifax RLFC at The Weavers Lounge, Shay Stadium in Halifax on Wednesday May 30 2007.
The event, which will be free to attend, is designed to attract new match officials to the sport while giving fans the opportunity to increase their general awareness of the laws of Rugby League.
RFL match officials development officer Paul Carr, said: "We have already successfully staged a similar event and this really is a tremendous opportunity for anybody curious about becoming a match official or with an interest in the laws of the game to get more involved with the sport.
"There will be a fun and interactive element with those attending able to make judgments on various video highlights as well as being able to chat with people who have experienced life as a professional match official
Former professional referee Colin Morris will be in attendance and will be joined by former professional player and South African Rugby League international Jamie Bloem.
The lighthearted highlight of the event will see Colin and Jamie staging an on-stage two-way chat to exchange their views on the role of the Rugby League referee.
Players from Co-operative National League One outfit Halifax RLFC will also be in attendance.
Anyone interested in becoming a Rugby League match official is encouraged to attend the road-show, where they can sign up for forthcoming Modified Games Match Officials' courses to be staged throughout this year.
