World Rugby Officiating : The home of Rugby officiating on the web : Match Commissioner Programme

Planning for emergencies

While this online training starts two days before the game, it is conceivable that something could happen further in advance which has an effect on the staging of the match.

A significant weather event or natural disaster, for example, could mean that you need to organise and chair a crisis meeting to discuss whether the match can proceed.

The exact nature of this meeting will of course depend on the details of the crisis being discussed, but the below agenda gives you a starting point to modify to your needs.
