Welcome to the Thames Valley Referees website.

We referee games of rugby within the Thames Valley region from Waihi, to Mercury Bay and Hauraki North.

We cater for all levels of referees from Beginners up to Representative referees and offer a wide range of games suiting your ability.

We have regular meetings at Paeroa Domain on Tuesday nights, where we up skill our referees with a comprehensive training program which includes presentations, work shops, guest speakers, video analysis and practical referee elements.

The referees have regular social occasions throughout the year, including our end of year prize giving night and regular meetings at a local pub.

We welcome anyone who is interested in being a rugby referee and encourage anyone who is thinking of picking up the whistle to give it a go.

Refereeing is the best seat in the house!
