DURHAM COUNTY RUGBY FOOTBALL UNION
The society has a policy that all referees that are graded at level 6 or above must pass a fitness test. Other refs that are not at level 6 or above are encouraged to attend the fitness sessions and take the test. Derek Blake organises training sessions every summer and puts those who want to or need to through the fitness test. Whilst normally this is a running test, under special circumstances it can be performed on a rowing machine
This season saw a small group of refs keep this regular training going right through the season - yes even in the snow.
Details of the latest training arrangements will appear here as soon as they are available.
