1 2013 SEASON Managers Meeting

2 “True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing” Socrates

3 Respect Rugby What is it? A program being initiated at NSW Rugby which will enhance the culture of spectator and participant behaviour at all levels of Rugby Ground Marshals, Codes of Conduct, conditions of entry, Team Zones, and much more

4 The Definition of Abuse Any action directed at an individual, before, during or after a match, which would be considered unacceptable behaviour as outlined in the Australian Rugby Union Code of Conduct. This includes abusive, threatening or intimidating language, unnecessary obvious dissension, displeasure or disapproval directed at match officials, crude or abusive gestures, and any action or conduct which impairs public confidence in the honest and orderly conduct of matches and competitions.

5 Ground Marshals If a Team does not provide a Ground Marshal then that Team will be deemed to have forfeited the Match A Ground Marshal may be anyone that isn’t a coach or trainer Ground Marshals are to be identifiable by wearing a coloured vest as provided by SJRU Responsibilities of a Ground Marshal: – Introduce themselves to both Match Referee and opposition Ground Marshal – Wear the vest at all times – Ensure crowds and officials maintain Codes of Conducts – Manage the behaviour of participants and officials within the team zone – Complete two (2) laps of the playing enclosure with the opposition Ground Marshal at approximately 10 minutes into both halves

6 The Ground Marshal Card Process The GMC process is to be initiated by a referee when any participant in the Match is receiving an unacceptable level of abuse from off the field 0 The simple test for unacceptability is this abuse is affecting outcomes on the field. Examples of incidents which could be impacting on the Match are – The abuse is increasing the likelihood of foul play – The abuse is affecting decision making of players or officials; or – The Match Officials feel threatened Referees are being re-educated of the ATE Dot Points  Don’t participate  Don’t debate  Don’t escalate  Vacate the area

7 The Ground Marshal Card Process When this is reached, at the next stoppage of play the referee will:  Mark the stoppage position  Move away from the play to the centre of the field and hold up the GMC (Black Card)  Both HOME & AWAY Ground Marshals are to make their way to the Referee as quickly as possible  Referee to brief the Ground Marshals as to the problem and ask them to act on the issue  Immediately restart play, sparing no time waiting for the Ground Marshals to act

8 Aim of the GMC To alert the Ground Marshal to an off-field problem that he or she may not have seen Transfers responsibility for an off-field problem to the Ground Marshals (and therefore the Clubs) and takes the referee out of the equation The GMC is not a device to be used to solve an on-field problem ARs are being reminded that if they see a problem, to report it to the Ground Marshal informally Referees are being asked to apply common sense in all circumstances

9 Abandoning the Game If the Ground Marshals are unable to solve the problem outlined and it is obvious to the Ground Marshal and/ or the referee that it is unsafe to continue the Match, the referee has the ability to abandon the Match as allowed within the Laws of the Game This is to be done by again showing the GMC and blowing “no-side”. Fairly extreme conditions will have to exist for this decision to be taken

10 2013 Rule Snapshot

11 SJRU Competition Rules If there is a conflict between the Team Officials from each Team, then the view of the Home Team will prevail The Referee MUST NOT impose their own version of the SJRU Competition Rules Similarly, Teams MUST NOT request referees to “suspend” any SJRU Competition Rules to suit their own purposes
