Rugby Refereeing

During the recent school holidays Jade Lawson (Grade 12) travelled to Mauritius to referee in the 7th Annual Vision Sports 7s rugby tournament. This year was the first year that they included girls to referee in this particular tournament. 

Jade refereed the U13 boys’ games and the girls’ friendly games. She also had an awesome opportunity to referee a touch rugby game!

Jade said: “It was such an amazing experience and so many friendships were made stronger with many memories shared.”
