**** New **** PO on Head Contact Process

  • April 26, 2021

The latest Preferred Options paper (#20) addresses the challenges of refereeing the Head Contact Process (HCP) in the community game.

The HCP is a world-wide requirement in rugby refereeing and must be applied. Society referees are asked to consider the issues and recommendations in the paper to help ensure a consistent and fair management of the HCP.

A version of the paper in the format for the PO booklet is also available.
