Welcome to the North Midlands Society of Rugby Football Referees. We have been providing rugby union referees to Greater Birmingham, Herefordshire, Shropshire and Worcestershire since 1920. We are also federated to the Staffordshire Rugby Union Society of Referees, and regularly send members out on exchange to other parts of the country.

If you would like to become a referee check out our ‘New Referee‘ page giving you all the information and how to access the relevant courses.
