Try Tag Rugby are always on the lookout for good quality referees. Whether you are a current Tag Rugby player, Rugby League or Rugby Union referee, Touch Rugby referee, or someone looking for a new challenge, we would love to hear from you. Register your interest today!

Refereeing Tag Rugby is a great way to get fit, stay involved and have plenty of fun. We can be flexible around your work or playing commitments. You have the opportunity to referee from as little as one game per week up to seven days per week. If weekday evenings are no good or you just want to referee some additional games then we also need referees for our one-day tournaments.

All referees are well trained and well looked after. We understand that high quality referees are a very important part of the Try Tag Rugby experience.


Try Tag Rugby hold regular practical referee workshops and classroom based forums, for referees to ask rule questions, gain knowledge & experience and liaise with other Tag Rugby referees to gain greater consistency across the board. Once you’re a trained Try Tag Rugby referee and you start to referee regularly, you will also have the opportunity to referee Tag Rugby International matches and be eligible for the many rewards we have available for our referees.

You can start in the social grade and depending on progress potentially work your way up to refereeing Super League and International Tag Rugby!




Through refereeing you’ll make new friends amongst the referee ranks and get to know players at the leagues you referee.

We hold post tournament referee socials as well as an annual curry night in order to bring together and build this wonderful community that you could be a part of.


Get paid

New referees start out on £10 per 40 minute game and can increase this up to £14.50 a game the more they referee!

There are also increased levels of pay for referees who complete a full season. Referees typically receive payment by bank transfer 3-4 days after the games.



Referees typically referee three 40 minute games in an evening so it’s a great way to get or keep fit.

Why pay to join a gym, when you can be paid to exercise for two hours instead!


Learn the game

Learning to referee is a great way to understand the game from a whole new perspective.

If you’re a player looking to improve your game, what better way than to give yourself an edge by knowing the rules and improving your decision-making skills!



Designed to fit around your lifestyle, referee as much or as little as you like. We have referees that referee one game a year up to others who referee 10 games a week.
You dictate how often you referee so it really can fit around your lifestyle and the leisure activities.
