Referees and Secretaries

Please be aware that when a referee working on his own on a pitch where the dug outs are on the same side, the home team has the option of choosing what line they will do. Invariably they will choose the line on the same side as the dug outs and as a result the away team must provide an Assistant for the opposite line.

If the away team refuses to provide an Assistant, the home team can be asked to provide a second Assistant. In the event of no second Assistant being available the referee must do the line himself. The refusal of the away team to provide an Assistant must be reported to the AUL.
