The Q.R.R.A. (Brisbane) appoints to a range of matches across the Brisbane region, including both Seniors, Schools, Junior and Social Rugby competitions. These appointments are made by the Appointments Officers, Dick Byres (Seniors and Schools U16 and above) and Laurie Monaghan (BJRU and Schools U15 and below).
Currently all senior appointments are sent directly to members via RAS, and in 2016 we will be implementing RAS for all BJRU appointments.
If referees are unavailable for their appointments, they should contact the appropriate appointments officer directly at either firstname.lastname@example.org (Dick Byres), or email@example.com (Laurie Monaghan)
Once the first round of appointments has been made (usually Tuesday or Wednesday), a collated version of all appointments is posted below. Once the necessary changes have been made due to dropouts, the revised appointments are posted here, usually late on Friday afternoon.
Timely advice of unavailability is key to ensuring the appointments officers are able to do their job. Members can advise their unavailability in two ways:
RAS – the Referee Appointments System allows members to input their unavailability into the system themselves via a public portal. Instructions on how to use this portal can be found in the QRRA Appointments Procedures document.
Email – Members can email their unavailability to firstname.lastname@example.org.
