IRFU referee development officer -- and Test ref -- Peter Fitzgibbon presented an IRFU-affiliated referee course at Presentation Brothers College, Cork.

The course, coordinated by Munster Rugby's coach development department, was attended by 16 coaches representing PBC, Bandon Grammar, Midleton College, Midleton RFC and Sundays Well.

The workshop is provided for people who are appointed to referee by their club or school due to the unavailability of Branch refs.

The primary purposes of the course is to give club and school-affiliated referees a good understanding of the main priority areas of refereeing, with the emphasis on safety.
