What is the minimum age of an official in the League. The Touchy in the Brow v Egremont game looked about 14.

Can an appointed touch judge play in the 2nd team of one of the teams he's officiating? To me this puts him and everyone involved in an awkward position.

There is a minimum age for the Ref but the TJ will be down to who us available/ appointed although for RFL games it is usually 18 plus

There was a very young trio of officials today at Stanningley; don't like to moan about referee's but with 1 minute left to play, two players throwing a single punch at each other surely there is no need for two red cards.

One of the worst refs I have seen at conference level.

 If you decide to bin them there is no need for talk, strong or otherwise, just show the card.

We had a 14 year old touch judge on Saturday. One of our players scored, with lots of bodies around him, so the ref couldn't see him place the ball down, but it was very clear from the touchline. I asked the touchy why he hadn't given it, as the ref did look across at the time for his reaction. He said he's just there for goal kicks and watching the touchline!

Similarly in the Challenge Cup we had a try scored past us from a huge forward pass, and when the touchy was questioned on why he hadn't flagged it he said "It's not my job!"

Makes me wonder why they're there really!

And he was right. The referee makes the decison of forward passes, the TJ can give his or her opinion... but they wouldnt do it by raising their flag.

Is this only for challenge cup matches or across the board

Accross the board - a TJ doesnt signal a forward pass by raising their flag.

The TJ would stop where the forward pass happened and hold his flag against his chest.

The clubs have to pay these lads and some of them aren't fit for purpose.

Get some training done , if you need to , then you can get running down the touch line and show everyone how to do it .
