Practice Matches are run in the pre-season, and organised between clubs. Clubs have the opportunity to request WRFL umpires in any combination of Field, Boundary and Goal umpires, or to provide some or all of their own umpires.
WRFL Umpires that are available to umpire Practice Matches should liaise directly with their coach – these appointments are not made through Schedula.
Payment for practice matches is now processed the same way as a standard match – not in cash to the umpire on the day as in the past.
The rate for payment is generally 50% (half) of what would normally be paid to that umpire for a regular match, dependent on the number of umpires requested/appointed to a match. To learn more about Pay Rates click here
