As the new president of the Edinburgh Rugby Referees Society it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our new website and to the upcoming rugby season. This year we have seen big changes to the local district leagues with more opportunities than ever for referees to get out on the pitch on Saturday and Sunday.
I look forward to seeing many of you at our meeting at Meggetland this evening and I'm sure you will all make our new members feel extremely welcome. We can look forward to a presentation from the SRU about their new Hive Learning system and Alex Pratt will be chatting to us about her experiences at the Rio Olympic Games this summer. Hopefully she will inspire a few of our referees to strive for the Tokyo Games in four years time!
