As the Capital Rugby Union season enters round 6 this weekend, it’s no secret that the premier Rugby Union competition in Port Moresby has been suffering from a shortage of officials to officiate matches.
Senior players, supporters and followers of the code have been volunteering to officiate matches to keep the competition rolling.
Being one of the biggest Rugby Union competitions in the country, and housing a total of 14 clubs alone this year, Capital Rugby Union still faces a lot of challenges this season.
Apart from seeking an alternative venue, there is a dire need of officials to officiate games week-in, week-out.
With a total of 28 games played in a weekend, CRU has only 5 senior referees to officiate games.
All clubs are aware of the challenge faced throughout the duration of the competition, and have agreed to provide volunteers to officiate matches to assist match officials.
However, most clubs have not attempted to uphold their end of the bargain.
Kicking off round 6 this weekend, all clubs are requested to submit their volunteers prior to each match.
