Match Day Paperwork is required to be completed for every match.  Clubs supply the paperwork and complete their own Team Sheets and Timekeeper Sheets.  Umpires are responsible for completing the Match Report Sheet and Goal Umpire Scorecards.  All paperwork goes into the Yellow Match Envelope and umpires are responsible for returning this envelope to the WRFL (see locations below).

Some of the Match Day Paperwork can be completed online – please click here to access the Online Match Day paperwork.

When completing the Match Day Paperwork please remember:

  • Fill in all sections of each sheet – date, competition, competing teams, age group, venue – as each sheet gets separated from the yellow envelope so needs to clearly identify the match it is for
  • Complete votes and make sure this copy is the one put in the yellow envelope
  • Umpire names – please make sure ALL WRFL umpires are listed on the Match Report and that their names can be CLEARLY READ on each copy of the sheet.  Where Club Umpires are officiating, they can include their names and tick that they are a Club Umpire.
  • Make sure all information is included in the yellow envelopes:
    • Match Report sheet
    • Team Sheets x 2
    • Goal Umpire score cards x 2
    • Timekeepers Sheet
  • If there is an official report during the game complete the WRFL Player/Official Report Sheet and also notify Steve Keating of the incident
