Match reviewers needed
THE ball is back in the hands of the clubs as the Toowoomba Rugby League seeks to find a number of volunteers for the Match Review Committee.
TRL president Greg McIntyre was the only member of the Match Review Committee this season until he was joined by two fellow TRL directors this week to review the weekend games.
At the TRL meeting on Tuesday night, it was agreed that the league would call for nominations from the clubs for the Match Review Committee.
“It would be good if we could have a pool of six or seven people,” McIntyre said.
“The volunteers would have to view videos on Monday or Tuesday each week as any players who contest charges would have to go before the judiciary by the Wednesday.
“Clubs need to know midweek who is available when preparing for the weekend.”
In other news, the TRL is weighting up its options about a replacement for secretary Wendy Porter who has resigned effective June 30.
“We will decide between a paid secretary (current position) or an honorary secretary with a paid administrative assistant,” McIntyre said.
“If the secretary's position was honorary, it is likely there would be an honorarium.”
McIntyre said the TRL board would consider the matter of filling the secretary's position at its June 23 meeting with a formal decision likely at the July TRL delegates meeting.
