The best approach is for the Manager or Coach of the team that person is “supporting” to approach that person and ask them to please ensure they are encouraging the children or ref by applauding. It is important that you deal with the coach or manager of the team that person is supporting. The message will have more impact if it comes from one of their peers rather than an opposition coach or supporter.
All Small Blacks games should be played in quarters. At quarter time the ref should stop the game for a brief substitution break, this is where changes can be made; this isn’t an opportunity for teams to have a huddle and a team talk. The same will happen at three-quarter time. These stoppages are only to put reserves on to ensure everyone plays two quarters of a game.
A coach or manager from each team should ref one half of the game; all coaches and managers should have completed a Small Blacks Course or Associate Referee Course. All matches in all grades should have the Green Referee Bibs.
The WRFU and JRC don’t keep a record of scores on their database for teams in non-competition grades (all grades below U13), however it is useful for all teams to submit their true scores to the convenor of their club so that the WRFU are aware of any teams who may be winning by significant amounts or losing by significant amounts.
Once the points difference gets to 30 or more in favour of one side, the game should stop. Players should be mixed up between the teams, regardless of whether coaches want to or not. Then the game can continue and no score is kept. We need to keep in mind it is about the kids and ensuring they have a quality experience, which means a close game.
