Senior referees from across all three services officiate at the highest level of Services rugby.

All have officiated in Inter-service matches, and many of them are National Panel or aspiring National Panel referees.

Amongst our cohort we have match officials who have refereed in World Rugby appointments.

Appointments are made by the UKAF Referee Appointer, in conjunction with the single Service Senior Referee Appointers, to ensure that there is the opportunity for everyone to develop.
