Referee trials for the 2018 Tag World Cup

Try Tag Rugby (TTR), the official Great Britain delegate to the International Tag Federation and the European Tag Federation, is looking to take six referees to the 2018 Tag World Cup in Coffs Harbour, Australia (1st to 4th Nov) with trials taking place in April 2018. 

The Tag World Cup trials for referees will be conducted at the Wasps Tag Rugby Festival, held on Saturday 7th April 2018.

Referees that are successful in the trial will receive an official invite from Try Tag Rugby to represent the Great Britain match officials at the 2018 Tag World Cup. Successful referees will also receive the following:

  • Accommodation covered whilst in camp for the Tag World Cup
  • Tag World Cup uniform allocation (referee uniform, polo shirt, hat & back pack)
  • daily allowance for meals

Trialling referees must be available to referee for the duration of the Wasps Tag Rugby Festival. If you would like to be considered but you are away (work/holiday) or if you are injured, you can still be eligible for selection if you notify us beforehand. To register your interest, please email

Successful referees will be required to commit to refereeing at least one early summer & one summer league (highest level possible & locked in for the season) to ensure the best preparation possible for the 2018 Tag World Cup.
