PBRRA was founded in 1904 and is the longest running referees association on the East Coast.

We officiate all local Poverty Bay rugby competitions and various games around the country. PBRRA are dedicated to developing young, up and coming referees via interchanges to other districts and providing a potential career path. We have connections with North Harbour, Bay of Plenty, Hawkes Bay and Wellington rugby referees associations. 

We also welcome and take the time to look after everyone at our association.

We believe that refereeing is for anyone and everyone. Anyone from ex-players to people totally new to rugby are most welcome. 

Contact 0800 REFEREE who will refer you to us or come to our club rooms at Rugby Park, Chalmers Road, Monday nights, 6pm.
