In the lead up to the HSBC Sevens World Series, Singapore Rugby hosted a number of workshops and World Rugby courses with a view to improving the standard of rugby across Asia.
During the camp, led by World Rugby Educators, Greg Hinton and Andrew Cole, the attendees were given an insight into how to reach the standard expected to officiate at Asia Rugby’s top level.
The participants were also fortunate enough to have World Rugby Sevens High Performance Coach, Craig Joubert deliver a presentation on the expectations of a high performance referee on the Sevens World Series Circuit.
In addition to the training workshop, SRU also held World Rugby Citing Commissioner and Match Commissioner courses, in which participants were able to demonstrate their learning at one of the major sevens tournaments in the world.
Both of these courses were led by World Rugby Educators, Gene Tong and Steve Hinds who both have considerable years of experience at the top level of the game.
In total, over 40 participants from 15 different Unions and Referee Societies took part in what proved to be a highly valuable learning experience. Singapore Rugby has once again proved to be at the forefront of training and education in Asia.
Singapore Rugby would like to show their appreciation to both World Rugby and Asia Rugby for co-funding the “Super Week”.
A thank you also to the Educators who helped to facilitate the various events in the city, and the organising committee within SSRUR who worked tirelessly in the lead up to and during the events. Lastly, many thanks to our partners around Asia for their ongoing support of these programmes.
