Congratulations to South Australian Referees Tom Greenshields and Adam Bethell on being selected for Rugby Australias School Student Scholarship Program. Both referees will be appointed to the NSW Country Rugby Union State Championships from May 11-13.
The Scholarship was introduced a number of years ago to help raise the profile of refereeing at schools, and to provide encouragement for young referees to remain in refereeing when they leave school. The program has proved very successful with a significant number of young referees progressing through the scholarship program to referee at senior levels in their state.
Students selected for the SSS program will be involved in a range of activities designed to improve their knowledge of the game, enhance their performance as referees, and expose them to a higher standard of rugby.
Good luck for the challenges this program will bring to you both.
