One of the great things rugby teaches people is discipline. It's one of the qualities a coach can instill in players. Don't tolerate foul play – particularly anything like dangerous tackles or thuggery. Referee abuse is unacceptable at any level of the sport.
Fair Play means:
- Maintaining your dignity whether or not you are winning.
- Respecting the opposition, the officials and the rules.
- Staying calm no matter what happens.
And remember the referee is in charge at all times. If the game gets out of control, play can become reckless and dangerous. Play your part – play fair. Support referees by respecting their decisions – remember many of them are volunteers.
