Reports

In 2018, there have been major changes to the judiciary and reporting process. These changes are:

1. Judiciary and Code of Conduct will now be managed by NSWRL

2. All dismissal and Code of Conduct forms are online forms. You can access them below.

3. No change to Mini/Mod Replacement process at this stage.

Remember, in a case of Judiciary, Code of Conduct and Mini/Mod Replacement, you need to contact Michael Karam on the day it occurred. Your written report is due Sunday night. Please contact Michael if this can't be done in time.

Referees Role in Judiciary Reporting

After the game has been completed the Referee will fill out a Match Official Dismissal Sheet. This form will be distributed to the Player, Players Club & JL Association via the Ground Manager.
The Referee will the then submit a detailed report through the online form as opposed to filling a document out manually. The link is Match Official Report. Once submitted this will be automatically forwarded to the Judiciary Administrator.
The process of submitting forms online will streamline the process and reduce the workload on the Executive Officer.

Why write a good report?

Ensure that the charge is graded appropriately by the Match Reviewers
Accurate reporting means the grading you recommend is more likely to be agreed with by the Match Reviewers

Reduce the likelihood of a player challenging their charge
If a player/club see a report that they do not think reflects what occurred they are more likely to challenge it

Reduce the likelihood of a Not Guilty verdict at the Judiciary
Inaccurate/incomplete reports are less likely to stand up under a challenge at the Judiciary

Qualities of a good report?

Sufficient detail
Accurate descriptions of events
Players Clearly Identified
No irrelevant information
Clearly identify the proper charge and recommended grade
Realistic expectation of grading
Do not use Emotive Language
Be certain of what your reporting or don’t put it in
