This blog is proudly created By Keith Hackett for Keys to Referee. I was asked through social media to explain and highlight ways in which referees can improve their performances.

I so believe that one aspect of law interpretation that creates controversy is how a referee applies the law around challenges.

MY AIM

  • To be able to judge the difference between those challenges that are fair from those that are not.
  • To consider when an unfair challenge is CARELESS, RECKLESS or committed with EXCESSIVE FORCE.
