Pacific Islanders join IRB's expanded Sevens' referees panel

Updated 16 August 2013, 8:43 AEST

The IRB has named four Pacific Islanders among a strong panel of elite Sevens match officials for the Sevens World Series, which kicks off in Australia in October.

They are two Samoans and two Fijians on the new development Panel for refereees.

The IRB says with the increasing popularity of Sevens since their inclusion in the Olympics the expanded development panel will allow referees to perform under increasing scrutiny and physical pressure.

Presenter: Geraldine Coutts

Speaker: Nick Jordan, Rugby Sevens Specialist
