1 Touch Judging

2 1.Role of a touch judge 2.Signals 3.Positioning

3 Role of a TJ Sole judge of: touch touch in goal kicks at goal (except when the TJs do not agree, referee will decide)

4 Role of a TJ In all other cases, the TJ may advise the referee who may or may not accept the advice offered. TJs can give advice on (amongst other things): dead ball decisions foul play, particularly off the ball incidents offside chasers on kicks in general play offside players in general play (usually given via communication system, otherwise advice given at an appropriate time, such as at a stoppage in play) ball steals knock ons forward passes tries

5 Signals Signals are required to indicate a decision by a TJ for the benefit of the crowd and referee. Where it is only advice offered to a referee, these signals are generally for the benefit of the referee and not the crowd. Where a communication system is used, TJs can for some offences offer advice to the referee using verbal input rather than signals.
