With the final whistle being blown in Round 15 of Super Rugby at the weekend, the attention and excitement now moves to Test match rugby. With test series being played on almost every continent of the globe in June and July, this has also meant it is one of the busiest periods in recent years for Australia’s National Match Official Team.  

 

In total, Australian match officials have been appointed to 23 tests or tournaments in the window this year.  Angus Gardner and George Ayoub feature in the British & Irish Lions series against the All Blacks, Nic Berry is one of 9 referees at the World Rugby u20 Championship in Georgia and Amy Perrett and Graham Cooper control women’s rugby tests in New Zealand as part of their preparations for the Women’s Rugby World Cup to be held later this year. 

 

Head of Referees, Scott Young, believes it is a promising start. “This is the team’s best World Rugby appointments for some time…every match they are appointed to is an opportunity. An opportunity to impress and to grab with open arms.  Each member of the team on this appointment list, and those not on it, have stepped up in 2017 to own their development and grow our culture.”

 

Below we list who is where and officiating what over the next six weeks.  Best of luck to everyone representing Australia and the National Match Official Team!
